UCLA Non-registered student Voluntary UC SHIP Fees 2019-2020

Quarter  Semester
Graduate $2,615.33  $3,922.99
Undergraduate $1,448.380  1448.80

As a reminder, students must come to the Ashe Center for their medical needs and a referral will be written if it is medically necessary and we cannot provide the medical treatment. Non-registered students purchasing the voluntary plan will continue to have their behavioral health services through UCLA Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) and UCLA Behavioral Health Services (BHS) with a CAPS referral. Non-Registered students and dependents are not automatically enrolled. Dependents of qualified non-registered students also have the opportunity to enroll in the voluntary plan.

The following students may enroll voluntarily into UC SHIP:

  • All former graduated students (undergraduate & graduate) of UCLA are allowed to enroll for one semester/quarter upon graduation if they were enrolled in UC SHIP the prior term.
  • All non-registered graduate “Filing Fee Status” students of UCLA who are completing work under the auspices of the University of California, but are not attending classes. Students on filing fee status may purchase Plan coverage for a maximum of one semester or quarter. 
  • All non-registered graduate students of UCLA who are on a planned educational leave or approved leave of absence may purchase plan coverage of a maximum of one semester or two quarters.
  • ​Concurrent Status for non-matriculating students.

Dependent Care

Undergraduate, graduate and professional students who are enrolled in UC SHIP have the option to enroll eligible dependents in a voluntary insurance plan. The plan provides Anthem Blue Cross PPO medical insurance with the option to purchase Delta Dental and Vision benefits.

UC SHIP Dependent Flyer

Enrollment in the dependent plan is managed by Academic Health Plans (AHP) on behalf of Anthem Blue Cross and the cost of insurance (premiums) for dependents is paid directly to AHP. Student Health Services DOES NOT manage the enrollment or collect payments for the dependent plan.
