2014-2015: AHC-SHBP Plan Disruption

Beginning fall semester 2014, the University of Minnesota will no longer offer the AHC-SHBP. The University is instead offering the SHBP—which provides comparable benefits at a lower cost.

You will be automatically enrolled in the SHBP as long as you meet the eligibility requirements. To be eligible, you must be 1) admitted to a degree program; and 2) registered for six or more credits per semester that count toward the automatic assessment of the Student Services Fee.
Key features of the SHBP include:
