Graduate Student Handbook
Graduate assistants are required to have health insurance coverage that meets certain standards as established by the University Health Services. The University pays 80 percent of the individual annual premium if the graduate assistant enrolls in basic health insurance designated by the university. The remaining 20 percent of the premium is deducted from the student’s assistantship stipend, half in the fall semester and half in the spring semester. For further information, the students should contact University Health Services at or 814-865-7467.
