If you are graduating or leaving the university

Whether you are graduating or leaving the university for a period of time, it is important to think about your health insurance options. If you are on Berkeley’s Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP), your coverage is effective through graduate (July 31).

The SHIP office can help provide information and help you navigate different health insurance options. You can call SHIP at 510-642-5700, email [email protected] or send a secure message through the eTang patient portal to explore your options.
