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 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 2021-2022 academic year is September 13, 2021.

There will be an opportunity for NEW incoming Spring 2022 students or returning students who were NOT enrolled in Fall 2021 semester classes to waive from the Willamette Student Health Insurance Plan between January 3, 2022 and January 24, 2022.

*Enrollment/waivers for eligible students meeting the corresponding credit hours is/are annual and will apply for the entire 2021-2022 policy year. Students who waive/enroll Fall 2021 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 2022 semester. Spring open enrollment and waiver period is only applicable to new incoming students or students NOT enrolled in classes Fall 2021 semester. Late enrollment or waiver requests will not be accepted, no exceptions. 

Note: Students who are graduating, drop below half time, or not continuing their course studies paying tuition to Willamette Spring 2022 semester will no longer be eligible for the Willamette student insurance plan spring semester. Coverage will terminate January 5, 2022 for students not continuing or dropping below half time.
