Graduate Student Subsidy

Graduate students may be eligible for a subsidy from the Graduate School for the cost of their Aetna health insurance.

New Fall 2021 students are automatically enrolled with a plan start of 8/15. Continuing students are automatically renewed as of 8/15. Students with eligible stipend funding will receive a fall ($1,340) and spring ($1,340) subsidy credit on their student account that covers each half of the cost of their premium ($2,680).

Subsidies are applied in early October and again in February, once the fall/spring insurance waive-out period has passed. Please do not panic if your student account shows that you have an insurance balance. The Office of Student Accounts knows the subsidy credit is forthcoming, and they do not expect students to pay fall/spring health insurance charges before October/February.
