Would you like to Opt out?

You have the option to opt out of the plan if you already have comparable insurance (say, you’re covered under your parents’ or spouse’s insurance provider). Keep in mind that once you opt out, you will not be covered by SAMU’s Health & Dental plan, unless you opt back in.

The deadline to opt-out is Sept. 30, 2021 at 4 p.m. If you forget to opt out in time, you are obligated to pay for health and dental coverage all year. Luckily, opting out is easy and can be done online.

Once you’ve opted out, you will be reimbursed within 4-6 weeks. The refund will be processed by the Macewan Fee office. All inquiries can be directed to acctrec@macewan.ca. After opting out you will not be charged again.

Student Refugee Program

Each term, $2.50 of your student fees goes towards supporting SAMU’s Student Refugee Program (SRP). Working with World University Service of Canada (WUSC), SRP funds the tuition and housing of a refugee student for four years. With the help of a local committee group made up of students and staff, SAMU ensures all the sponsored student’s needs are met throughout their time at MacEwan.
