Student Health Plan

For Domestic Students (U.S. Citizen and Permanent Resident)

Insurance Requirements

Willamette University requires that all degree seeking half time or more domestic students carry medical insurance coverage comparable to that offered through the school's comprehensive Student Health Insurance Plan. You will automatically be enrolled in the Aetna Student Health Insurance Plan and charged through our student accounts department at the beginning of the fall and spring semester.

Students with other medical insurance that meets the criteria of comparable coverage may submit an online waiver request each academic year in the fall. The deadline to submit that online waiver for the 15-16 school year is September 14, 2015 at 5:00pm. 

*Note: The waiver website will be available to complete online waivers till Tuesday, September 15, 2015 (5pm)

Note: Students who are graduating, drop below half time, or not continuing their course studies paying tuition to Willamette Spring 2016 semester will no longer be eligible for the Willamette student insurance plan spring semester. Coverage will terminate January 5, 2016 for students not continuing or dropping below half time.

See Insurance Requirements chart for specific program credit requirements to carry health insurance.
