Compulsory Fee Descriptions: Guelph Campus

Compulsory Fees for Undergraduate and Diploma Students

Student Health and Dental Plans

All full- or part-time undergraduate students and all full-time graduate students are automatically enrolled in the student health and dental plans and will be charged the annual fee (please see the Tuition and Fees webpages for amounts). Student plans may be combined with other plans to provide 100% coverage.

Students covered by an equivalent dental plan can opt out of the dental plan by submitting an online opt-out form by the posted deadline. Students will need to provide proof of alternate coverage.

Students cannot opt out of the health plan.
