SHIP for Non-Registered Students
Who May Enroll?
A voluntary SHIP option is also available to those who have approved temporary medical withdrawal or pregnancy leave from the University while retaining student status. The student must have been enrolled in SHIP the Fall or Spring term immediately preceding the term for which the student wants to purchase. The Berkeley SHIP office will evaluate eligibility on a case-by-case basis.
For information on SHIP for dependents, see our Insurance for Dependents page.
Effective Fall 2018, SHIP is not available to students who have graduated or are on non-medical/pregnancy leave from the University. For help transitioning off of SHIP, please see our tips here.
NOTE: Filing Fee, Concurrent Enrollment, and medical withdrawal students are NOT automatically enrolled. If you purchase the voluntary plan, you are also eligible to add your dependents under the voluntary plan. Please see the information available on Insurance for Dependents for details.
