New Health Insurance Requirements

Health Insurance Requirements for Domestic Graduate & Professional Students

All graduate and professional students taking 9 credits or more per semester, and all graduate assistants, must have health insurance coverage either through UNLV, or the insurance carrier of their choice. What that means is that all full time (9 credits or more) graduate and professional students will be charged for UNLV student health insurance; if you are able to provide proof that you carry alternate insurance from a non-UNLV provider, you may qualify for a waiver and the UNLV health insurance fee will be removed from your account.

The Student Health Insurance Fee for the Spring semester is $1,224 which will provide insurance from January 11, 2014 through August 15, 2014.

The deadline for submitting a waiver for the Spring 2014 semester is January 13, 2014.

New Health Insurance Requirements for Domestic Graduate & Professional Students Starting Fall 2013

In May 2013, the Graduate & Professional Student Association (GPSA) passed a motion to recommend that all fully admitted graduate and professional students taking 9 credits or more per semester, and all graduate assistants, must have health insurance coverage either through UNLV or their own carrier. In June 2013, the NSHE Board of Regents supported and approved this proposal. As a result, the mandatory hard waiver student health insurance policy is in effect immediately for the Fall 2013 semester.
