*Per Board of Regents policy, credits for classes that were scheduled as off-campus delivery, at the time of Registration by Appointment will be excluded from the total credit count. 

If you are 1) admitted to a degree program, and 2) registered for 6 or more credits per semester (or 3 or more credits during summer term) that count toward the automatic assessment of the Student Services Fee, you are required by the University of Minnesota to have health plan coverage. If you meet both of these criteria you will be automatically enrolled in the University-sponsored Student Health Benefit Plan.

By requiring students to have health plan coverage, the University ensures all students have access to medical care and can maintain good health, which is essential for academic success. You may choose to waive the University-sponsored Student Health Benefit Plan by providing proof of enrollment in an alternative eligible health plan.

Please note that if you are enrolled into the Regents Scholarship Program or the Senior Citizen Education Program (SCEP), you are not eligible for the student health benefit plan. Contact the Office of Student Health Benefits with questions about eligibility for the Student Health Benefit Plan.
