How are waiver eligible students enrolled in SHIP?

Each term that waiver eligible students are enrolled in classes at Pacific, their student account is automatically charged the fee for SHIP and they will be enrolled automatically*. The fee will appear on your e-bill statement as a separate charge. If you're already covered by a U.S. based health insurance plan that meet the Health Insurance Waiver criteria, you must apply for a Health Insurance Waiver. A new waiver must be submitted for each academic year in the Fall.
