UMSU Health Dental Plan changes
The University of Manitoba Students Union (UMSU) Health & Dental Plan is a
group benefit approved by students in a referendum in 2002. Since that time,
the university has supported the administration of the plan and continues to
do so. All students taking 6 credit hours or more for the Fall Term
(excluding Distance Education and Off Campus courses) are automatically
enrolled in the plan. The plan fee is $226.55 per year (for 12 months of
coverage), though students may add their family (spouse and dependants) for
an additional fee of $343.85. Students who have suitable alternate coverage
may apply to UMSU to opt out of the plan. Details of the plan and opt-out
deadlines are available online, at the UMSU Health and Dental Office in 110
University Centre or by calling 204.474.6666.
In an effort to provide information to the insurance provider that is both
timely and accurate and to ensure that students have suitable coverage when
needed, administration of the opt out process has been changed, effective
Fall 2007. The plan premium must be paid to the university, regardless of
whether or not you are planning to opt out. If your opt-out application is
approved, you will be issued a refund of the Health and Dental Insurance fee
directly from UMSU. Go to UMSU.ca for more information on UMSU Health and
Dental Insurance and to access the opt-out application form (available in
Note: Band sponsored students will initially be assessed the UMSU Health &
Dental Fee. The fee will be removed from your student account before
invoices are sent to Band sponsors.
Credit Hours needed per term to be considered Full Time
Full Time Status is determined on a per term basis. To be considered full
time, most undergraduate students must be enroled in at least 60% of a full
course load for the program in which they are registered. For example, in a
program in which the normal full load for a Fall/Winter Session is 30 credit
hours, full time status is based on 60% of a full term load of 15 credit
hours. In this example a student would need to be registered in a minimum of
9 credit hours in a term to be considered full time for that term. As the
course load varies between years within a program, faculties have determined
a minimum number of credit hours required for each term applicable to all
years for specific programs. If you are uncertain of the number of credit
hours required to be full time in a term in your program, please consult a
Student Advisor in your faculty.
Note that, with the exception of students in programs in which fees are
assessed on a per credit hour basis (MBA, MPA, Social Work by Dist Ed,
Occasional, Pre-Masters), graduate level students are considered full time,
unless approved by the department and the Faculty of Graduate Studies for
part time study. Students in the programs noted above will be assessed as
full time or part time by the rules used for undergraduate students
described above (i.e based on registered credit hours.)
Good Luck with registration. If you have questions regarding registration in
your program please check with your faculty office.
