Refund Policies

When a refund is warranted, a check covering all refunds due will be mailed by the Bursar's Office to the mailing address on file in the Office of Enrollment Services. You may elect to receive any refunds due by direct deposit in MySTAR.

Refunds of tuition and fees paid by a sponsor, donor, financial aid, or scholarship are refunded to the source rather than directly to the student who has withdrawn (if the funds were made available through the sponsor).

Sponsored Students

Students who will be sponsored by non-UTMB agencies must submit a funding letter to the Office of Student Accounts prior to the first day of the term. The information must be submitted by fax to (409) 772-5056 or by email at sfinsvcs@utmb.edu. The sponsor letter should include address, telephone number, email and name of contact for the organization. This information will serve as a legal contract obligation by the agency to pay the student's tuition and fees.

Students who are sponsored by UTMB should contact their school representative to ensure the sponsorship form is submitted to the Office of Student Accounts no later than the first day of the enrollment term.

Exemptions

The State of Texas does offer tuition exemptions to qualifying students. For a list of exemptions and the requirements, please visit College for All Texans (http://www.collegeforalltexans.com/apps/financialaid/tofa.cfm?Kind=E). If you feel you qualify for an exemption, please send all required documentation to the Office of Student Accounts at sfinsvcs@utmb.edu.

Enrollment

**NEW FOR FALL 2015**

Health Insurance
As a student at a medical health institution, you are required to maintain health insurance. Enrollment in the UT Student Health Insurance Plan will now be automatic at the time of registration, and the cost of the policy will be included in your tuition and fee bill. UTMB students holding comparable coverage may be eligible to waive enrollment in the UT Student Health Insurance Plan by visiting https://utmb.myahpcare.com/waiver. Through this process, you will provide information about your coverage.

For students who attest to coverage under another approved plan, the health insurance fee will not be assessed to their student account.

How Do I Add Dependents?

You can enroll your family using the appropriate enrollment form foundat the Academic HealthPlans website. You will see the links to various forms under Enrollment.

Completed forms can be faxed or mailed to AHP:

Academic HealthPlans
P.O. Box 1605

Ph 855-247-7587 / Fax 817-809-4701

What Does Insurance Cover?

The University of Texas System Student Health Insurance Plan covers injury and sickness. Some of the benefits include, but are not limited to inpatient hospitalization, outpatient doctor's visits, x-rays, laboratory charges, surgery and emergency care. There are limitations and maximums that may apply. Please refer to the Academic HealthPlans website for additional coverage details.

Dental Insurance

Dental coverage is available to students and dependents and can be purchased simultaneously. If the student chooses to purchase dental coverage for the dependent, it must be purchased at the same time as the student coverage. The dependent must have the same coverage as the student. To enroll, complete the Dental Enrollment Form found under Enrollment at the Academic HealthPlans website. Send the form to Academic HealthPlans along with the payment.

If I Have Questions?

If you have questions regarding enrollment, premium or claims and benefits, contact Academic HealthPlans at 855-AHP-CARE (855-247-2273).
