UC Health Insurance Requirement
All UC Davis students are required to have health insurance. In order to satisfy this requirement, all registered students are automatically enrolled in the University of California Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP).
If you have already have comparable insurance coverage, and do not wish to be enrolled in UC SHIP, you must apply for a UC SHIP waiver by the posted waiver deadline date.
Approved waiver applications are only valid for the academic year in which they are submitted. A new waiver application is required to be submitted prior to the start of each new academic year.
**The services at Student Health and Counseling Services are available to all students, even if you waive enrollment in UC SHIP. **
