This annual program is billed on a per-semester basis, with the fall semester running from August 1 through January 31, and the spring semester from February 1 through July 31.
All regular, full-time graduate students are automatically enrolled in the dental insurance, charged the $88.50/semester fee, and can access an insurance card once enrolled on the Delta Dental Member Portal. Any graduate student not automatically enrolled may contact the Student Health Center (by September 1 in the fall semester, or February 1 in the spring) to enroll.
Any graduate student who would like to waive the dental insurance MUST request a dental waiver on the Insurance Enrollment/Waiver Portal, documenting proof of existing dental insurance by September 1 for the fall semester. Spring semester waivers, which have a deadline of February 1, are only applicable to new graduate students entering during a spring semester.
All undergraduate students are eligible to enroll in the voluntary, undergraduate dental insurance plan. The charge is $258/semester. To enroll, log on to the Insurance Enrollment/Waiver Portal no later than September 1.
Family/Dependent Coverage for Graduate Students
Graduate students who wish to enroll a spouse or dependent child in the dental insurance program must enroll in the Insurance Enrollment/Waiver Portal by September 1 for the fall semester and February 1 for new spring semester students only.
