Health Insurance for Students


Students Encouraged to Carry Insurance

All Westminster students are encouraged to carry health and accident insurance. Many plans carry students on their parents' coverage if they are under the age of 27. In particular, students involved in any of the following are encouraged to carry personal health insurance: human performance and wellness courses, outdoor education and leadership courses, and/or trips through the Fitness, Wellness, and Recreation Department and Outdoor Program. In case of accident, injury, or illness, your personal health insurance will be the primary provider.

Students Required to Carry Insurance

  • All student-athletes are required to carry insurance coverage.
  • Students admitted to the Nursing program are required to provide evidence of health insurance coverage.
