Health Insurance

All Willamette Early Career and Career Change MBA students are automatically enrolled and charged for the Willamette Student Health Insurance Policy every academic year. Student health insurance is billed on a semester basis and will appear on your tuition and fee statement.

Insurance enrollment and insurance waivers for eligible students apply for the entire 2016-2017 policy year. Students who waive/enroll Fall 2016 semester are choosing to waive/enroll for both Fall and Spring Semester (if eligible both Fall and Spring semester based on credit requirements). The opportunity to waive/enroll will not be provided again in Spring 2017 semester; Spring open enrollment and waiver period is only applicable to new incoming students or students NOT enrolled Fall 2016 semester. Late enrollment or waiver requests will not be accepted, no exceptions.
