Important spring semester date!

PrintHello UCalgary!

I’m Jessica Revington, your new Students’ Union (SU) President. Congratulations on getting through exams, and I hope you’re having a great spring so far. I’ll be sending out more information about the SU and everything we do later in the year, but I wanted to introduce myself now and give you a heads up on an important date.

If you’re starting your program in the spring semester or are a medical student, you should know that the last day to opt-out of the SU’s health and dental plan is May 15, 2019. To do this, you must have proof of alternate coverage and submit an Opt-Out Form online. Because you pay an annual fee, you can only opt out once a year on the anniversary of your enrolment in the plan. Once opted out, you do not need to opt out ever again. The opt-out stays with your student ID until you need to opt back into the plan. For more information on this, check out the SU’s website.

The SU has an open-door policy, so feel free to drop by the SU offices if you have questions about your SU’s programs, services, events, or advocacy priorities.

Have a great spring and summer, and if you run into me this year don’t be a stranger – I am here because of you, so I’d always love to chat, even if it is just a quick hello!


President, Students’ Union
