Graduate Student Dental Problem

Nancy MacBainNews

Dear Graduate Students,

The GSA provides a dental plan for graduate students who are *not* working at least 130hrs as a TA or RA in lieu to TA. If you are working 130 hours or more you are covered under the CUPE dental plan.

Due to a technical error all graduate students were accidentally charged for the GSA Dental Plan on their account.  If you are eligible for the CUPE dental plan (working 130hrs as a TA (or RA in lieu)), this charge will be removed from your account following the September payroll run – you do not have to take any further action.  For all other students, the charge will remain on your account and you will be enrolled in the GSA dental plan (excluding Divinity and MBA).

All graduate students will remain in the GSA Health Plan.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the GSA President Jessica Merolli at We apologize for the inconvenience.
