UIC requires that all registered students be covered by health insurance and provides a plan, known as CampusCare, which is covered by a fee that is automatically assessed along with tuition and other fees. If you have comparable coverage it is possible to waive this fee.
When you register for summer session classes you will be enrolled automatically in CampusCare for the summer. There is no enrollment form to complete. Eligible students include all registered degree and non-degree Undergraduate, Graduate, and Health Professional students.
For temporary policy changes due to the pandemic, please visit CampusCare COVID-19 for the most up-to-date information.
CampusCare benefits include:
CampusCare coverage begins on Monday, May 17, 2021 for students who register for any summer courses before Monday, May 31, 2021. If you register for courses on or after May 31 your coverage will begin on the date you register. To avoid problems with access to coverage, the CampusCare office advises you to register for courses before May 17. Summer coverage ends on August 15, 2021.
The CampusCare Student Health Insurance Fee is one of several fees that appear on your student account. The fee for the 2021 Summer Session is $445 for a student.
Note that the CampusCare Student Health Insurance Fee is different from the Student Health Services Fee, which is a mandatory fee that cannot be waived. Please check the explanation of tuition and fees for more information about services covered by this fee.
Only students with comparable health insurance coverage, for example through a legal guardian or an employer, can waive out of the program by submitting the online waiver form by 11:59 p.m. CST on Monday, May 31, 2021.
Students who have applied or registered after May 31 should contact the Summer Session Office for assistance.
If there are any unusual circumstances why you missed the May 31 deadline date to waive CampusCare, you may submit an official letter of Appeal explaining why the deadline was missed.
