The College will recognize same or opposite sex domestic partners as spousal equivalents for purposes of benefit administration, to the extent permitted by law. In addition, any children of qualified domestic partners will be eligible for benefits on the same basis as children of married spouses.
These benefits include, but are not limited to, College ID card privileges, coverage under the College's health insurance program (subject to meeting specific dependency criteria established by carriers), eligibility for tuition remission plans for spouses and dependent children and consideration of requests for personal leave in the case of death or serious illness of a partner or dependent children.
To qualify for coverage, both members of the partnership must complete and sign a Acknowledgment of Domestic Partnership form which sets forth the requirements of a domestic partnership for this purpose.
