All students are automatically enrolled in and charged for the Dean College Student Health Plan unless proof of comparable coverage is provided. If a student has her or his own health insurance and declines enrollment in the College health plan, the student must complete the online Dean College Insurance Waiver Form. (This link is only available during specific enrollment dates):
- Fall Semester - June 1 through September 15
- Spring Semester - December 1 through February 1
It is important to note that the burden of proof of participating in a SHP approved health insurance with comparable coverage falls on the student.
By completing and submitting the insurance waiver, the student accepts responsibility for all medical and/or mental health expenses incurred should his/her own insurance prove insufficient.
The Athletic Department maintains a catastrophic health insurance policy that may provide student athletes, who are injured while participating in an intercollegiate sport, with additional benefits. This policy is for medical expenses incurred by a student athlete after a $25,000 deductible has been satisfied. Any payments made by your health insurance company and your out-of-pocket expenses are applied towards this deductible.
