Am I Eligible to Enroll in Student Health Insurance Plan?
Enrollment in the University-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) is mandatory for all full-time undergraduates (12 credit hours or more) and graduates (nine credit hours or more). Exceptions include full-time graduate students in the following programs: MBA, Data Analytics and Organizational Leadership, accelerated option, Executive MBA, DO/MBA, MBA/PHY, AA/AS, RN to BSN, MSN, M.Ed., Ed.D., and post-baccalaureate. These students may enroll voluntarily in SHIP. Part-time students are also eligible to enroll voluntarily if they are taking a minimum of four credit hours per term. ABSN, Medical Assisting, DEI graduate certificate, and Paralegal certificate students are exempt from hard waiver.
Covered students may also enroll their lawful spouse, domestic partner (same-sex, opposite-sex), and dependent children up to the age of 26. Part-time students may not enroll their dependents in the plan, regardless of number of hours enrolled.
Students must actively attend classes and remain enrolled with Rockhurst University for the first 31 days of each term to be eligible for coverage.
