  • You are always welcome to stop by the GSA Office. We are happy to help you fill out the form and mail it out for you.

Black Out Period

  • Each academic year, we experience a blackout period whereby all new students will not be able to access their benefits from September to about late October. This is because we must wait to receive the list of students who paid into the health plan from Student Fees before we can confirm your payment with Green Shield.
  • The benefits are retroactive to September 1st, meaning that once the blackout period is lifted, you can submit any receipts you might have accumulated from September 1st and onward to Green Shield for reimbursement.
  • The black out period does not affect returning students

All full-time students are automatically included in the plan. The fees are paid with tuition. For all part-time students who wish to be included in the health plan, you must opt-in before the deadline.

For all full time students who register late, please contact the GSA to make sure you are activated on the Green Shield health plan.
