Full-time graduate students are automatically members of the UMSU Health and Dental Plan. Fees are assessed in the Fall term, or upon registration into a graduate program.
Part-time graduate students are not automatically assessed the fees. However, they are eligible to opt-in to the plan before the deadline. Students already covered by a health and/or dental plan through a private plan (i.e. employer, spouse or parent) can opt-out of the plan before the deadline. Students may also enroll a spouse or dependent(s) for an additional fee before the deadline. Check here for more information.
Due to the nature of graduate work, some Graduate Students will not be registered for classes prior to the deadline. Consequently if a grad student is late in registering and is assessed Health & Dental fees on their tuition, the University of Manitoba Registrar’s Office (Graduate Studies Department) will notify the UMSU Health & Dental Office at 110 University Centre. The student will also be notified of their option to opt-out of the plan by the registrar’s office if they have alternate Health & Dental Coverage.
If a student wishes to be part of the plan and does not opt-out they will be activated in the Student Care system and are required to pay the Health & Dental Fee.
