UHC Voluntary Enrollment

Voluntary students are now able to enroll in the Student Health Insurance plan by going to and searching in the text box for Kennesaw State University. Once on the schools UHCSR homepage, they will find the voluntary enrollment tile and on that page there will be a “Get Started” link. From there the student will fill out the required information for enrollment through the UHCSR website. 

UHCSR reduced the creation of paper enrollment forms in an effort to become more green. Students should use the UHCSR site for voluntary enrollment. The deadline to register for the voluntary plan for Fall of 2021 is August 30.
