All registered students are automatically enrolled into the UC SHIP insurance plan.  Please keep in mind that waiving is an annual process and must be completed every academic year to avoid being automatically assessed and enrolled into UC SHIP.  If you are currently covered under a private health plan and do not wish to be dually covered with UC SHIP, you may submit an online application to waive out of the student health insurance plan.  The waiver website will be available and accessible for the upcoming 2017-18 academic year during the below times:

Fall 2017 Semester Students (Law/Med): This site is no longer active. Please check your academic calendars for upcoming waiver deadline dates.

Fall 2017 Quarter Students (Graduate/Undergraduate): The waiver application is no longer available at this time.  Winter 2018 Quarter waiver site will be available beginning December 1st, 2017.

  • Those with third party access are unable to log onto the UC SHIP waiver application with their sign-on credentials.  Only registered UCLA students will have access to the site.  
  • Once an application has been successfully completed, you will be automatically notified of the status of your application. An email confirmation of the decision to your UCLA email account.
  • Please remember that it is the responsibility of the student to prove that a waiver application has been submitted and approved.  It is recommended that you print a copy of your approval for your records.
