There are unique situations when a student will not qualify for automatic SHIP enrollment. Below are three categories in which MSU Denver students can voluntarily opt-in to the Student Health Insurance Plan if an application is submitted by the posted enrollment deadline.
For students who meet one of the category qualifications as explained below, may voluntarily opt-in by submitting any required documentation and the associated enrollment form by the semester deadline to SHIP Special Coverage Completed Forms Submission Link.
A student who will experience a loss of coverage and are currently registered for 9 credit hours (6-8 for Graduate students), should inquire about SHIP coverage by contacting the Student Insurance Office for more information.
Graduate Students taking 6-8 credits in the Fall or Spring semesters (6 or more in the Summer) can voluntarily opt-in to SHIP by completing the Graduate Student Enrollment Form and submitting it securely through SHIP Special Coverage Completed Forms Submission Link by the opt-in deadline shown on Coverage Dates, Premiums & Deadlines. Graduate students registered for 9 or more credits in Fall or Spring are automatically enrolled and do not need to complete an enrollment form.
Undergraduate students taking less than 9 credit hours in their final semester prior to graduation, can enroll in SHIP by completing the Graduating Student Enrollment Form and submitting it securely through SHIP Special Coverage Completed Forms Submission Link by the opt-in deadline shown on Coverage Dates, Premiums & Deadlines.
In addition, written documentation is required by the student’s academic advisor stating the student has less than 9 credit hours to graduate and will graduate at the end of the enrolled semester, is required!
The Graduating enrollment form and academic advisor letter (or copy of an email from your academic advisor) must be submitted together.
Summer Semester Coverage

Optional summer semester health insurance coverage is available to incoming Undergraduate students who register for 9 or more Summer credits and to Graduate students who register for 6 or more credits by the Summer opt-in deadline. There is no automatic enrollment in Summer semester coverage, it’s voluntary and requires you to complete a Summer Enrollment Form and submit is securely through SHIP Special Coverage Completed Forms Submission Link by the opt-in deadline shown on Coverage Dates, Premiums & Deadlines.
Please note, that the summer semester premium for health coverage cannot be billed to the tuition account, and instead payment information will be required on the enrollment form.
