Waiving Enrollment in UC SHIP

New waiver applications must be submitted prior to the start of each new academic year by the posted waiver deadline date.

  • Registering on the Waiver Site
    Students who have never submitted a waiver application before must log into the waiver site using your Kerberos ID and passphrase. Once authenticated, you will be redirected to the Academic Health Plan (AHP) waiver site, where you will be required to register.
    The registration process will allow you to log into the waiver site in the future, and will maintain all of the information you enter. 
  • Waiver Information
    Once you have registered on the AHP waiver site, you will need to enter information about your insurance coverage, and upload copies of both your insurance ID card and your insurance plans benefits summary*. These documents will be used to verify your eligibility and that your plan meets all of the current waiver criteria.

    *Students with Medi-Cal, Tricare, or Medicare are not required to upload copies of your insurance plans benefits summaries as these plans all satisfy the waiver criteria.
