Graduate students often have questions about the tax implications of their financial or employment status as Graduate Assistants (G.A.), Research Assistants (R.A.), Teaching Assistants (T.A.) or as recipients of fellowships or scholarships. Please refer to IRS Publication 970 (Tax Benefits for Education) on the IRS website and/or your personal tax advisor. Plan ahead. We encourage you to explore this concern prior to tax season.

U.S. law requires mandatory health insurance for all graduate and full-time students. MSU Denver sponsors a Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) that doesn't change in cost no matter your age, where you live or if you're undocumented. If you're already insured, you can submit an online waiver to opt out of SHIP coverage at the beginning of each semester.
You're also required to comply with Colorado's immunization policy by submitting your records to the University upon acceptance.
You can find more information regarding health insurance and immunizations at the Auraria Health Center.
