Undergraduate students who are currently enrolled in the plan will have coverage through August 15, 2016. Students affected by this change have been notified and have been provided information to assist in obtaining new coverage. This change does not affect international undergraduate students, who are mandated to purchase health insurance. Students wishing to purchase insurance should contact Nevada Healthlinkfor a list of insurance brokers who can assist in finding new coverage.
International, Graduate and Professional Students
Full time graduate and professional students will experience a decrease in premiums while maintaining the same benefits.
