All registered undergraduate day students, both domestic and international; all students enrolled in the Physician Assistant Program, on-campus Occupational Therapy Program, Addiction Counseling or Clinical Mental Health Counseling master's degree programs as well as international graduate/doctoral students attending Johnson & Wales University and taking credit hours (excluding full-time Johnson & Wales employees) are eligible and enrolled in the plan on a hard-waiver basis. Only students who meet these criteria and are required to have health insurance coverage while attending JWU are eligible for the Johnson & Wales University Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP).
Eligible students who have other health insurance coverage (i.e. under a parent’s or employer’s plan) and do not want to be enrolled in the SHIP must submit an online waiver documenting their other coverage prior to the posted deadline each academic year. Once a waiver form is successfully submitted, the insurance charge is removed from the student’s account within approximately seven business days.
The waiver deadline for students beginning with the Fall 2019 is July 12, 2019. Students who miss their waiver deadline will be enrolled in the SHIP and responsible for paying the insurance premium for that term and any subsequent terms in which they maintain eligibility during that academic year.
