International students new to U of T in 2020-21
You are automatically enrolled in the University Health Insurance Program (UHIP) starting August 10. Due to COVID-19 quarantine requirements, early coverage during the period August 10 – 31 is available free of charge. Fees for coverage during the regular academic year will be listed on ACORN, your student account.
You need to show your UHIP card and carry a UHIP Claim Form every time you use health care services, so print yours today. Register online at www.mysunlife.ca, print your card and carry it with you. Instructions on how to print your UHIP card are now available.
Dis-enrolling from UHIP for the fall 2020 semester
International students who are studying remotely outside of Ontario for the full fall 2020 term may apply to dis-enrol from UHIP for the fall semester. Dis-enrollment applications will be available online in October 2020.
Students who dis-enrol but arrive in Canada prior to the end of the fall semester are required to contact the UHIP office immediately upon their arrival. UHIP coverage is mandatory for international students and their dependent family members while they study in Canada.
Students’ UHIP coverage and fees will be activated again for January – August 2021. If border restrictions continue, we will provide more information on how to dis-enrol for the winter semester in January 2021.
If you are studying remotely from within Canada but outside of Ontario, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your student number and use the subject line: “Remote Study in Canada – Outside Ontario”.
