The annual open enrollment period in which all eligible graduate staff may enroll in the graduate staff plan and other benefits takes place each fall. This site will be updated with more information as the period draws near.

New graduate staff hires and those newly eligible for benefits will have 30 days from their date of hire to enroll. Enrollment in the graduate staff health plan outside of the annual enrollment period or a newly eligible appointment is only allowed with a qualifying life event (see Qualifying Event Form at the bottom of this page).

Enrollment in your benefits is a two-step process. It is important to complete the steps below as changes cannot be made after the deadline without a qualifying life event.
