University Health Center Requirements
Health insurance is mandatory for all newly admitted freshmen and transfer students registered for 6 or more credits. All newly-admitted students must complete an on-line waiver to indicate whether they either: 1) have insurance (i.e. through parent plans, family plans, or employer-sponsored plans) and wish to waive the requirement or 2) wish to purchase the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) available through the University of Maryland.
Students who do not waive the requirement by the University's Health Center’s deadline will automatically be enrolled in SHIP and the nonrefundable premium will be billed to his/her student bursar account.
To waive or purchase SHIP (and for deadline information), visit http://www.health.umd.edu/about/insuranceandfees prior to June 1, 2013.
All incoming freshmen, including those participating in Freshmen Connection, must complete the University of Maryland Immunization Record. Failure to submit the completed health form to the University Health Center before the first day of the fall 2013 semester will result in a registration block on your student record, preventing you from registering for the spring 2014 semester. In addition, a non-compliance fee may be assessed.
Click here to access the printable form. Either mail or fax the completed health form directly to the Health Center (contact information is provided on the form) or submit it to the Health Center when you come to orientation.
Information will be sent to all Maryland freshmen via e-mail in July 2013. Please visit www.alcoholedu.umd.edu for details about this mandatory on-line program.
