Am I Eligible to Enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan?

All domestic undergraduate students taking 12 or more credit hours and all domestic graduate students taking nine (9) or more credit hours are eligible to enroll in the student health insurance plan. All undergraduate and graduate students who have applied for graduation, have been approved by the registrar’s office and are taking a minimum of 3 hours of coursework during their final semester are considered full-time students by WKU and are eligible to enroll in the SHIP. All students must take 3 credit hours to be eligible for this insurance in the summer. All international students, include ESL, F-1, J1, visiting faculty and scholars are automatically enrolled in the plan at registration, unless proof of comparable coverage is provided. The student must actively attend classes for at least the first 30 days after the date for which coverage is purchased. Home study, correspondence, and online courses do not fulfill the eligibility requirements that the student actively attend classes. The Company maintains its right to investigate eligibility or student status and attendance records to verify that the Policy eligibility requirements have been met. Eligible students who do enroll may also insure their Dependents.
