You’re able to manage your coverage to make it work for you. Unlike Health and Dental plans, the Legal Protection Service is entirely optional! Because there is no proof-of-coverage requirement, you can opt-out of the program when you pay your fees on Quest. For more information on opt-outs, visit UW Student Financial Services.

If you opt-out of the Legal Protection Service, you lose all access to resources, including the toll-free helpline on any legal questions and access to legal representation on academic rights, employment rights, and housing & tenancy matters.

NOTE: opting-out of the service at the beginning of the policy year means you cannot opt back in at any point during that policy year, with some exceptions. To request an exception please contact your Vice President, Operations & Finance at

Eligibility details, coverage, and fees information are available at the Studentcare website.
