Acceptable Comparable Health Insurance Coverage

Refer to the SHIP website for a complete description of the insurance plan. In order to waive coverage, your plan must meet the following criteria:

  • Deductible of $1,000 individual ($2,000 family) or less per policy year; and
  • It is domiciled in the United States.

Students not completing the waiver process and providing private medical insurance information prior to September 1, 2020, are automatically enrolled in The Claremont Colleges student health insurance plan, and the student’s account will be charged with the current SHIP premium. The SHIP fee is reflected on your tuition bill. The premium for 2020-2021 is $2,655. 

The College requires that proof of insurance be provided EACH year that you are an enrolled student. If waivers have not been submitted by September 1, 2020 you will be automatically enrolled and the premium amount will be charged to your student account.

If you have any questions about the SHIP plan, please contact the Dean of Students Office at (909) 621-8017 or
