Student Health Insurance Waiver & Enrollment Process

Prescott College requires that all On-Campus Undergraduate students have health insurance coverage. Every student will be enrolled in the Aetna Student Health Insurance Plan available through Prescott College unless they waive out of the plan by providing proof of comparable insurance coverage by the waiver deadline. Please read the following information regarding the waiver and enrollment processes:

If you have health insurance (other than the insurance offered through Prescott College): Waiver Process

You must complete the Health and Wellness Student Insurance Online Waiver. This process will be available beginning May 13, 2019 to August 30, 2019. If you do not complete the online waiver process by the designated date, you will be enrolled in the Aetna Student Health Insurance Plan and you will be responsible for the insurance premium. Students only waive out once per academic year, but if a student misses the waiver deadline for fall, they can still waive out for the spring/summer term.

If you do not have health insurance: Enrollment Process 

Students who do not waive out of the college insurance will be automatically enrolled in the Aetna Student Health Insurance Plan and the premium will remain on their account. Insurance ID cards will be mailed by the insurance company to the address you have on file with the school. A temporary card can be issued upon request after the waiver deadline has passed.

At Prescott College, instructors really get to know you

One of the greatest assets of a Prescott College education is the development of close working relationships with several faculty members who are well-connected in their fields. This provides direct access to opportunities for jobs and graduate fellowships, as well as the familiarity that allows faculty to write effective letters of reference.

Part of the Prescott College experience involves multiple layers and opportunities for mentoring. In addition to mentored course studies, many graduates volunteer time to be available to current students as a career mentor.
