Student Health Insurance

Domestic Students/U.S. Residents

Saint Michael’s College requires that every full-time undergraduate student enrolled in 12 or more credits have medical insurance coverage- either a personal policy, or the one offered by the College. Students are automatically enrolled in the Saint Michael’s Student Health Insurance program and charged the annual premium without exception unless they are already covered under another policy and complete the online Medical Insurance Waiver Form by the published deadline. Graduate students may enroll in the insurance plan directly with WellFleet.

Students that purchase the WellFleet coverage can print insurance cards from their WellFleet account but will also receive a hard copy mailed to their home address.

The deadline to waive the Saint Michael’s Student Insurance Plan for the 2019-2020 school year has passed.

Spring 2020 transfer students should contact Student Financial Services if they wish to purchase health insurance through the college. The Spring 2020 Insurance rate is $1,115. 

The 2019-2020 annual premium for the SMC Student Health Insurance Plan is $1,814.

The 2020-2021 annual premium for the SMC Student Health Insurance Plan is TBD.
