Student Health Insurance

Hamilton College requires that all students have some form of health insurance coverage. Students who enroll at Hamilton will be billed a proposed annual premium for 2023-24 of $2,483.76 for the Hamilton College Student Health Insurance Plan unless they submit an online waiver and provide proof of alternate coverage. This waiver must be completed annually. Please complete the waiver by July 1 to avoid unnecessary charges. 

Fall Only — $1,034.90
Spring Only — $1,448.86

Tuition Insurance Plan

The Tuition Insurance Plan minimizes the financial loss if an illness or accident requires your son or daughter to withdraw from college before the semester is completed. This insurance plan provides coverage for tuition, room and board charges.

In order to reduce the cost of the annual premium, students are automatically enrolled in the plan and billed for half of the annual premium at the start of each academic year. Students may opt out of the insurance by completing an online waiver. The annual premium for 2023-24 is $510.
