How to Pay

UHIP fees, which will appear as International Health Care on your SOLUS account, are due annually in the first month of your program. 

  • Be sure to allow 3–5 business days for payment processing
  • If your payment is late, your health coverage is not impacted but additional service fees and/or late fees may apply and accrue

UHIP payment deadlines:

  • Fall term – Sept. 30
  • Winter term – Jan. 31
  • Summer term – May 31

UHIP fees can be paid the same way you make all other payments to the university. You do not need to identify your payment as UHIP.

For acceptable payment options, please visit the Office of the University Registrar.
For questions about fees, please email


Only students that fit specific criteria and with written confirmation can request a refund of their UHIP fees by emailing Make sure to include your student number in the email.


  • You were enrolled in annual UHIP coverage (September to August)
  • AND you completed your program before March 1
  • OR you withdrew early from your program before March 1

Refunds/adjustments cannot be processed after March 1. 

If your registration status changes, you may be eligible to apply for a change to your UHIP coverage. To apply, see Adjustment to Coverage for eligibility and instructions.

If eligible, refund amounts are based on the request date and can take 2–3 weeks for processing. Once finalized, the credit will be applied directly to your SOLUS account.
