UC SHIP and Financial Aid

If you wish to discuss your options for covering the cost of UC SHIP premiums, you may contact the Financial Aid Office at 831-459-2963.

If you attempted to waive UC SHIP and were denied, and want to see if you qualify for financial aid, the Financial Aid Office will need to know that our office has reviewed and denied your request to waive UC SHIP.

The Student Health Center cannot advise you on the various ways to cover the cost of UC SHIP. Please discuss this question with Financial Aid and be sure to let them know that your request for a waiver has been denied.
