Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP)

Insurance Enrollment Requirements:

  • All enrolled students must have health insurance coverage.  Enrolled domestic students who carry personal insurance coverage may waive enrollment in the Claremont Colleges Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) by submitting information and proof of coverage annually via their SHIP Insurance Verification Portal. Students who do not complete the waiver process will be enrolled in SHIP.
  • The coverage premium will be added to the student’s account and the enrollment will be automatically submitted to SHIP.
  • International students are required to have the SHIP coverage. International students who can prove coverage by a domestic insurer who pays claims in the US under a policy that meets the other waiver requirements may contact Lyn Hughes in the Dean of Students Office to request a waiver.

Students can obtain a 100 percent refund one week before or on the first day of class. After the first day of class, the medical coverage charge is non-refundable. SHIP will be charged on July 8th for Annual enrollment if not waived.

Questions regarding the Student Health Insurance Plan should be addressed to Lyn Hughes, Administrative Assistant in the Dean of Students Office, at

Please note that Student Health Services does not directly bill any insurance company, even Student Health Insurance. You will need to submit a claim for your visit to the insurance company to receive reimbursement. For more information about Student Health Services please go to
