Opt-in

Opt-ins are available for full-time off-campus students and for families.

Find the Distance Opt-In form and Family Opt-In form in the Forms section of the website. Distance students who want to opt themselves and their family in need to submit both a Distance Opt-In form and a Family Opt-In form.

All insurance coverage expire on August 31. Opt-ins must be renewed by submitting a new Opt-In form every year.

Unlike for full-time on-campus students who are charged for the insurance with their tuition, opt-in fees need to be paid directly to the GSS. Opt-ins can be done in person or by email at gsoc[at]uvic.ca, depending which mode of payment you select. Opt-in fees and payment options are presented below

Fees

Insurance fees are determined by referendum of all voting members of the GSS.
