Beginning Fall 2023, our new waiver process will allow students to complete an annual waiver instead of a new waiver being required at the start of each semester.

The Fall 2023 waiver/enrollment portal will be available 7/5/2023 - 9/7/2023. This means that your approved waiver for Fall 2023 would be valid to waive coverage from 8/1/2023 - 7/31/2024. Once the portal is open, enrolled students can either waive or activate the CU Anschutz Student Health Insurance Plan by visiting

While all eligible students are automatically enrolled in SHIP with coverage beginning August 1st by registering for classes, there is an administrative hold with Anthem Student Advantage until after the waiver portal closes on September 7th.  In order to access or utilize your student insurance coverage prior to the waiver portal closing, students can visit the new Anthem Student Advantage site listed above and follow the prompts to activate your coverage immediately on/after 7/5/2023 (depending on when you enroll for Fall courses).

Dental benefits are included, and no longer require an opt-in form or additional cost.
