Eligibility

Graduate Students on Assistantship

Graduate students who are admitted to an eligible graduate degree program and have a full time Graduate Assistantship (GA) and are enrolled in six (6) or more graduate credit hours at the University of Nevada Reno are automatically enrolled in the student health insurance plan at no charge to the student unless they choose to submit an insurance waiver of comparable coverage. Graduate students who are admitted to an eligible graduate degree program and have a part time Graduate Assistantship (GA) and are enrolled in six (6) or more graduate credit hours at the University of Nevada Reno are automatically enrolled in the student health insurance plan with half of the insurance premium paid by UNR. Half time GA students who do not submit an insurance waiver of comparable coverage will have their student accounts charged for the remaining half of the insurance premium.

Graduate Students NOT on Assistantship

All eligible degree-seeking graduate students enrolled in 6 or more credit hours are automatically enrolled in the UNR sponsored student health insurance plan, unless they choose to submit an approved insurance waiver of comparable coverage. Eligible students will be charged a Health Insurance Fee for the Fall and Spring/Summer terms. All students who have the student health insurance plan during Spring 2021 term will be covered through August 14th, 2021, regardless of summer credit hours.
