Student Health Insurance Plan
The Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) is a comprehensive plan offered through Aetna Student Health. In alignment with the Affordable Care Act, SHIP guarantees that you can obtain necessary treatment if you develop a serious illness or injury. It also guarantees that you can obtain preventative medical services like immunizations and physical exams. In Fall 2018, all undergraduate students will be automatically enrolled in SHIP and will be charged $2,690 to their accounts.
CLICK HERE to waive SHIP. Those interested in the waiver must have proof of insurance and be registered for classes for the Fall 2018 semester.
The waiver period begins August 1st. For questions about SHIP, email [email protected].
George Washington University expects our 1st year students to complete the EVERFI course AlcoholEdu for College in an effort to reduce negative alcohol-related consequences among students. This education covers alcohol and motivation, standard drink size, blood alcohol concentration along with key strategies for those that choose to drink along with those that choose not to drink. This module will help you to:
- Develop critical skills to make thoughtful and healthy choices outside the classroom
- Reflect on your knowledge, attitudes, and experiences related to these issues
- Support your peers and yourself when faced with tough situations
Login information and access instructions will be sent to your GW email account in early August. You must complete the training course by Saturday, September 1, 2018 to be in good standing with the university.
