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.
