Though some students may be able to waive SHIP, experience shows us that most students in the MFE program do not have the strict equivalent coverage required by the university, especially international students. For a few, SHIP can be successfully waived by submitting the health insurance online waiver form with proof of a comparable health insurance policy. The waiver must be completed each academic year at University Health Services. In order to waive SHIP, you must be enrolled in a private medical health insurance plan that meets ALL of the waiver requirements detailed on the University Health Services (UHS) website.
New Students: After submitting your SIR and Deposit, contact the program office and email [email protected] for a manual waiver process. Please indicate that you are a newly admitted Master of Financial Engineering student beginning Spring Semester.
Continuing Students: Complete the online waiver form by July 15th for the second half of your program.
UHS provides a waiver worksheet to help you prepare in advance of using the online waiver tool. You will receive a confirmation number upon completion of the form. Please print the confirmation page for your records.
