Medical & Vision Plans

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 you have one or you can purchase the College-offered plan. 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. If you wish to purchase the Student Health Plan, you will need to enroll during open enrollment. One or the other must be done; otherwise Whittier College will charge the cost of the Student Health Plan to your student account. If you enroll or waive the Student Health Plan and you change your mind, you can still go back and make that change so long as the change is being made during the open enrollment period. The last transaction made by September 30 is the one that the College will honor. 

Enrolling in or Waiving Medical Health Plan

This plan provides comprehensive and continuous coverage that lasts year round beginning on September 1 - August 31 of the current academic year. The plan is not just for you, but also for your dependents. For an additional cost, you can cover a spouse, registered domestic partner, and/or your children. 

Enrollment in the Student Plan is easy. Open enrollment is between August 1 and September 15. More information about the plan will be available before the open enrollment period.
