SHIP (Student Health Insurance Plan) Eligibility Information
The University of the Pacific is committed to the health and well-being of our students. Students must have comprehensive health insurance while attending school. All eligible students are automatically enrolled in Pacific SHIP each new academic year.
Eligible students must submit the annual waiver BEFORE THE START OF EACH NEW ACADEMIC YEAR to cancel SHIP and to avoid being charged if already covered by a comprehensive, comparable plan. Newly eligible students in Spring must submit the spring waiver and reapply for the annual waiver in Fall. Approved annual waivers are valid for the entire academic year.
Per insurance carrier requirement, students enrolled in SHIP at the start of the academic year will have no option to cancel mid-year unless they graduate, enter the armed forces or become ineligible.
