Graduate Student Support Plan – RA-TA Health Insurance

Beginning Summer 2018, all students participating in the RA-TA Health Insurance Plan for the Spring semester will retain their RA-TA Health Insurance coverage through 7/31, regardless of GSSP eligible graduate appointment type or appointment end date. If a participating student does not need coverage for the summer period because they have an alternate form of coverage, the student can request early termination for the coverage period by completing the RA-TA Decline Form found on the GSSP for Students website (

January DGP/GSC Update

Graduate Student Support Plan

The GSSP tuition awards system began running in November for Spring 2018. As soon as a student actively meets all GSSP eligibility requirements, applicable tuition benefits will apply to the student’s billing account.

** Full-time Enrollment is a GSSP eligibility requirement. As mentioned above, please make sure that students are enrolled properly as soon as possible and before Census Day (also a GSSP eligibility requirement). If a student is below full-time, they are ineligible for GSSP and will not receive GSSP benefits. The query below is useful for managing enrollment and course load determination.

The SIS Reporting query below returns enrollment information by selected semester/term and academic program. Unlike SIS Admin Reports, the query displays the current Academic Course Load Determination (e.g., Full-Time, Half-Time, Less than Half-Time) and how many credit hours constitutes full-time enrollment for the selected term. Other useful fields include, “Previous Master’s” and “GSSP Track.”

      Query System:    SIS Query Viewer (or Manager) – Reporting

      Query Name:    GSSP_BY_PROG_TRM
