Student Health Insurance Plan

A student’s health and well-being is crucial to their capacity to learn.  To ensure students are prepared for medical situations that could create barriers to their learning, Syracuse University requires full-time, matriculated students to carry qualifying health insurance coverage.  Through the Syracuse University Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP), eligible students have access to comprehensive health care coverage. Graduate Assistants (GAs), including Research Assistants, Teaching Assistants, and Administrative Assistants, may enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan administered by Aetna.
