Weekly Events & Updates

Week of September 17, 2018

Editor’s note: The “Campus Happenings” e-newsletter is distributed weekly to students at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus by the CU Anschutz Office of Campus Student Services​. Details about those events and updates are also updated regularly on this webpage. Check in every Monday to find out what’s happening! If you have items you’d like to contribute, please complete the submission form by noon on Thursday for the following week.


Time is running out to file an RTD CollegePass waiver: The waiver portal for the RTD fee is available online. Check the link to see if you qualify to waive the RTD fee from your account. No waiver applications will be accepted after Friday, Sept. 28.

New dental insurance offers three free cleanings: Starting this year, CU Anschutz students are eligible for affordable dental insurance through the university. The plan includes three cleanings a year at no out-of-pocket cost and a $0 in-network deductible along with many other covered services. The plan costs just $21.50 a month, a total of $236 billed in two installments, for coverage through the end of summer semester 2019. All CU Anschutz students are eligible for this dental coverage, with the exception of most funded PhD students who already have dental insurance provided. If you have any questions, please contact your program. The registration deadline is Friday, Sept. 28, so check it out and sign up now!

Gender identity, sexual orientation & pronouns: New for students this semester are several new options to express their identity. The Registrar’s Identity Management webpage explains how to use the UCDAccess student portal to self-select gender identity and/or sexual orientation and/or how to choose the pronouns with which the student identifies so they can be addressed that way. Providing this information is totally optional. Details and links to additional resources are included in “CU Anschutz Today.”

Activate or apply to waive your CU Anschutz Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP): The deadline's sneaking up on us. Be sure you go to the UnitedHealthCare portal by Friday, Sept.28. To apply for a SHIP waiver, you will need to have existing qualifying insurance.
