Student Health Insurance (SHIP)

Students discussing health insurance.

Every year, the University System of Georgia and Kennesaw State University works hard to obtain the most competitive rates and most valuable benefits for students enrolled in the USG Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP). COVID-19 has, once again, highlighted the importance of the plan as a valuable healthcare and pharmacy benefit and we are happy to provide this coverage option for all of our students.

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 2022 will be available by July 1, 2022.
