Health Insurance

We want to be sure all students are protected in case of illness or emergency. Let us know about your health plan choice.

  • September 30 (Fall semester)
  • February 15 (Spring semester) 

Before the deadline of September 15 (February 15 for spring entrants) students who have their own health insurance may opt out of the College health insurance plan to have charges removed from their tuition bill. Students will receive written and electronic notices during the opt-out period explaining how to waive the College’s plan. 

Please note that international students are required to keep the College health insurance plan. Appeals for consideration of an exception must be submitted to the Counseling and Wellness Center with a copy of the insurance policy and proof of coverage (in English). This must be submitted no later than September 15 (February 15 for spring entrants) in order to be considered for an exception.  

Keep in mind that out-of-state insurance may not provide coverage in New York.

Contact the Counseling and Wellness Center at (212) 774-0700 for further information.
