Health and Dental Plan


Keeping you happy and healthy is a big priority for your Central Student Association, which is why we have developed the Student Health & Dental Insurance Plan!

We are able to provide coverage to all undergraduate students at the University of Guelph and cover a variety of prescriptions & procedures. For more information on your Student Health & Dental Plan, please visit the MyStudentPlan website.

The Health Plan is a mandatory universal plan and as such does not provide an opt-out; the Dental Plan offers a one-time opt-out with proof of alternate coverage.

2023 - 2024 Coverage

The benefit year begins September 1, 2023 and ends August 31, 2024.  Even if you are not enrolled for summer 2024 classes, you will still be covered by the plan until August 31.  If you are a NEW Winter registrant, your benefit year begins January 1, 2024, and ends August 31, 2024.

Winter Entry Students:  Students who are charged the Health and Dental fee in Winter 2024, will be automatically enrolled in both Plans by mid to late February (approximately 45 days from the start date of their program).

IMPORTANT:  If you opted-out of the Dental Plan last year, you will not be charged the Dental Plan fee for the remainder of your academic career here at the University of Guelph.  As such, you will NOT be required to opt-out of the Dental Plan.

Important Dates for Winter Entry Students

Dental:  Opt-Out Deadline — January 26, 2024:
If you were charged the dental fee of $122 and have comparable dental coverage, you may apply to opt-out of the Dental Plan.

The opt-out form MUST be submitted online, along with providing proof of comparable coverage on the MyStudentPlan website.  Opt-outs must be submitted in your entry semester of the current benefit year.  Please confirm the dental plan fee was charged to your student financial account before submitting an opt-out form. 

Dental:  Opt-In Deadline — January 26, 2024:

Eligible students who wish to enrol back onto the plan as of January 1, 2024, may submit an opt-in form and pay the applicable fee on the MyStudentPlan website.  You are eligible to opt-in if you opted out in a previous year, were not enrolled in Fall 2023, and are coming across as a new January 2024 student.

Health & Dental:  Family Coverage Opt-In Deadline — January 26, 2024:
Eligible Winter students may add family members to the Health and Dental Plans by submitting a family add-on form and paying the applicable fees on the
MyStudentPlan website. Family coverage does NOT carry over from previous years and must be completed every year.
