Health Insurance

Health insurance coverage is required for all students. All students are enrolled and billed for the College health insurance plan unless a health insurance waiver is completed. Details about the College health insurance plan as well as details on how to waive coverage are provided below. Please note that the Consolidated Health Insurance is a term policy for the current year and will be canceled if the student withdraws from the College.

Plan Details: Coverage and Cost

All registered full-time traditional undergraduate students (12 credits or more, with no more than 50% online courses) are billed a fee each semester for student health insurance.

The cost for Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 is $950.00 per semester or $1,900.00 for the 2018-2019 academic year. This plan is mandatory for all students who are not covered by another policy and have not completed the online waiver form.  Health insurance cards confirming coverage will be mailed to the student's local address upon confirmation of student enrollment for the semester. Master of Fine Arts students may request student health insurance by contacting Compass Student Services at (802) 860-2777.
