Vanderbilt University requires all degree and non-degree seeking students (excluding Division of Unclassified Studies (DUS) and Consortium students) enrolled in 4+ credit hours, a 0-credit research/dissertation course, or any other course that equates to full-time enrollment, to be covered by a health insurance plan that is comparable to or exceeds the Vanderbilt Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP), which is underwritten by AETNA and administered by Academic HealthPlans.

To learn more about the Student Health Insurance Plan, including how to waive coverage, please visit theĀ SHIP website.
