International Graduate Assistant Waiver Process - Guidelines and FAQs

The Graduate and Professional School, in consultation with TAMUS Benefits, HROE, TEES, AgriLife, and International Student and Scholar Services, created guidelines that outline the steps necessary to prevent International Graduate Assistants (GA) from being charged the international System Student Health Insurance Plan (SSHIP) fees while enrolled in the Graduate Student Employee Health Plan during the summer 2022 term. These guidelines include the conditions that must be met by June 1 for a GA to qualify, HR Liaison and GA responsibilities, and points of contact for further questions. Timely adherence to the steps outlined in the guidelines will result in the GA being included in the waiver report and the SSHIP fees being removed from the GA’s student billing account.
