Additional Fees

Student Health Insurance:

Health insurance is mandatory for graduate students enrolled in 9 or more credit hours.  Each year students must either elect to purchase the UVM Student Health Insurance Plan (UVM SHIP), or waive UVM SHIP by providing information about their current non-UVM insurance policy. More details about UVM SHIP are available at The Center for Health & Wellbeing Website.

UVM Health Fee:

The UVM Health Fee is mandatory for students enrolled in 9 or more credits, including students enrolled in continuous registration at a full-time level of effort (GRAD 903). For students enrolled in only GRAD 903, the UVM Health Fee will be billed as a separate charge to the account. For students enrolled in 9 or more credits, the UVM Health Fee is incorporated as part of the comprehensive fee.

Students enrolled in 5 to 8.99 credits who choose to purchase UVM SHIP will be billed the UVM Health Fee.
