Last date to show MSP coverage:  
If you have MSP coverage, you must show it to a member of staff in Student Services by Tuesday, August 8th otherwise you will be charged $190 for Guard.me medical insurance when you register for the Fall semester.

Important Information for students with MSP expiring on July 31, 2017:  
As of July 1, 2017, MSP are no longer accepting temporary renewals of medical insurance coverage.

Failure to pay before August 15th will result in you being blocked from a future registration or blocked from receiving transcripts if this is your last semester.   

Please come and see a member of staff in Student Services to confirm that you have received this message.
