Student Health Insurance

All full-time students are required to be enrolled in a medical health insurance plan. You can be insured through your parents’ health plan if they have one or you can purchase the College-offered plan, which is Kaiser Permanente. If you choose to stay on your parents’ plan, you will need to waive the College-sponsored student health plan during the open enrollment period.

Complete the online Health Insurance Waiver Form on the Kaiser Permanente Website through the link below or through the link on your Moodle Account. We encourage you to print and keep a copy of your waiver confirmation page.

Students will not be eligible to waive or enroll in health insurance online until they are enrolled as a full-time student (12 or more units). You must actively enroll or waive coverage each academic year.

If you're a part-time student or if you don't meet all of the eligibility requirements for the Student Health Plan, you may be eligible for coverage under the Kaiser Permanente Individuals and Families Plan.

If you have questions about your eligibility or the school's definition of "full-time status," please contact the Business Office.
