New members who meet all three of the above-mentioned criteria are able to make changes to their CUPE 3906 dental coverage until January 31, 2018.

Please note: change of status (including family coverage enrollment and opt-outs) expires for all members on August 31, 2018.  To maintain your status next academic year (if you are still working as a TA or RA in lieu), you must complete this process again in September.
