Eligibility Criteria

The health and dental plans were approved by student referendum and as a result are now a requirement of your enrolment at Nova Scotia Community College through your membership in the Students' Union. The plans provide protection and security for eligible students minimizing the effects of injury or ailments. The cost of the plans is included in your institutional fees provided you meet the eligibility enrolment criteria:

1) you are a full-time student or you are enrolled full-time in the Nova Scotia High School Graduation Diploma for Adults (known as Adult Learning Program - taking 3 or more units),
2) you are a student in online studies taking 4 units face-to-face,
3) you are a Canadian citizen or an international student who is in receipt of Nova Scotia MSI benefits, and
4) you are under the age of 70.

*** Please note If you are a student officially sponsored by the Department of Community Services (DCS), you will be automatically opted out from the Student Benefit Plan.***

If you are unsure about whether or not you are eligible for the Student Health and Dental plan, please contact the NSCC Student Benefits Plan Office
prior to any applicable deadlines.
