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. This means if you have paid the Spring/Summer student health insurance charge, you will have continuous coverage throughout summer term, regardless of taking classes, traveling or graduating.

Medical Leave of Absence

Students on a university approved Medical Leave are eligible to enroll on a voluntary basis for continued coverage under this plan for only the first term immediately following a university approved medical withdrawal, provided they were enrolled in this plan for the term prior to the leave. Please contact the university for more information about your eligibility and coverage options.
