Student Health Insurance Coverage Requirement
All active students are enrolled into the Dartmouth Student Group Health Plan (DSGHP) each academic year. To opt out of the Plan they must submit a completed waiver petition providing evidence of comparable health insurance coverage. Approved waiver petitions are only valid for one academic year. The DSGHP was designed specifically for Dartmouth Students (and their dependents) to provide health care that complements the services available through the Dartmouth College Health Service.
The deadline to submit completed waiver petitions for students starting in the fall term is July 1st. For students starting in winter, spring, or summer terms the deadline is the first day of the term. Students who involuntarily lose their health insurance coverage may enroll again. Enrollment must occur within 31 days of termination.
Questions about the College insurance requirements should be directed to the DSGHP Office.
