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 PacificSource Health Plan Policy (2017-2018 Academic Year) 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 2017-2018 academic year is September 11, 2017 (5pm).

There will be an opportunity for NEW incoming Spring 2018 or returning students who were NOT enrolled in Fall 2017 semester classes to waive from the Willamette Student Health Insurance Plan between December 18, 2017 and January 29, 2018 (5pm). If you are NEW for Spring Semester and wish to apply for a waiver from the Willamette Student Health Insurance Plan, the Willamette Student Health Insurance Waiver Form will be available starting Monday, December 18, 2017.
