Graduate Student Benefits

Graduate students are eligible to enroll in the UT System Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP). Effective Fall 2022, all funded, full-time status doctoral students with full graduate assistantships will be enrolled as prepaid Single Subscriber in the UT System Student Health Insurance Plan (UTSHIP).

Students can opt out or add additional coverage or dependents at their own expense. All other graduate students can enroll themselves in this plan at their own expense. For information on eligibility guidelines, plan details and enrollment please view the Academic Healthcare Plans. 

If you are in a student position and not eligible for graduate student benefits, you can learn about Student Health Insurance and healthcare options through Wellness 360. 

Insurance information for international students can be found on the Global Initiatives International Student Insurance webpage.
