The University System of Georgia requires certain groups of students to have health insurance as a condition of enrollment. We call this “Mandatory Enrollment.” If you fall into one of the mandatory categories list below, and you are not covered by an insurance policy (i.e.through parent plans, family plans or employer-sponsored plans) that meets the minimum standards of insurance as set by the Board of Regents, you must enroll in the USG- SHIP plan. Your registration will be automatic and the charge will be applied to your student bill.
If you are a mandatory student and are required to have insurance and would like to confirm your enrollment and receive your health insurance card early, please complete our online Enrollment Form and then follow the Create an Account procedures from the link on the home page.
