Great Plains College Health & Dental Plan
The Great Plains College Health and Dental Plan will provide extended health and dental benefits for full-time students enrolled in an eligible full-time program. The charges for the plans will appear on your student account statement. Once paid, you will have coverage for a full year from the day your first class begins.
If you have been assessed the plan’s fees but already have comparable coverage, you can opt out of the health and dental plans through the website at www.mystudentplan.ca within 30 days from the first day your class begins. You will still be required to pay the Health and Dental fee up front as part of your mandatory tuition fees, however, you will be credited for this fee once you opt out.
