The cost is $75 per semester and the term of coverage is from enrolment through the end of the academic year (for example, Sept. 2018-Aug. 2019). Students have an option to add their dependents for an additional charge. There is also an opt-out option if you have coverage through another provider. Both of these options are done online through the We Speak Student website.
