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.
CampusCare benefits include:
CampusCare coverage begins on Monday, May 18, 2020 for students who register for any summer courses before Monday, June 1, 2020. If you register for courses on or after June 1 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 18. Summer coverage ends on August 15, 2020.
The CampusCare Student Health Insurance Fee is one of several fees that appear on your student account. The rate for the 2020 Summer Session is $445. Note: Fees are subject to change prior to the start of the term.
Also 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, June 1, 2020.
Students who have applied or registered after June 1 should contact the Summer Session Office for assistance.
If there are any unusual circumstances why you missed the June 1 deadline date to waive CampusCare, you may submit an official letter of Appeal explaining why the deadline was missed.
