Student Health Insurance


Because of the high cost of medical care, it is Cornell University policy that every full-time registered student must have health insurance coverage.

The Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) is developed especially for Cornell students and provides extensive coverage at a reasonable cost for most on or off campus medical care. Complete and current details of the SHIP, its cost, and population-specific material for undergraduates, graduate students, and professional students are mailed to each student in July. Undergraduates, graduate students, and professional students each have separate deadlines and guidelines. Please be sure to check the July mailing for complete details.

The Student Health Insurance Plan provides coverage 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, anywhere in the world. Students graduating mid-year may be eligible to purchase the Early Grad Plan. Those enrolled in the SHIP may enroll their eligible dependents for an additional cost (fall deadline: September 30). Graduate and professional students who prefer to pay monthly must enroll in the installment payment plan no later than September 30. Because of policy restrictions, the plan is nonrefundable (except for dependents who no longer meet eligibility requirements and students who withdraw from Cornell within the first 30 days of the academic year).

For more information, students should contact Cornell University Office of Student Health Insurance, 409 College Avenue, Suite 211, (607) 255-6363; sicu@cornell.edu; www.studentinsurance.cornell.edu.
