Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP)

Health insurance coverage is required for all continuing and newly matriculated Pitzer students.   It is the student’s responsibility to keep the College informed of changes in insurance coverage and coverage must be confirmed every year via the online waiver portal.  Students will be automatically enrolled in the Claremont Colleges Student Health Insurance Plan unless proof of comparable coverage is provided and a waiver is submitted via the online waiver portal by the September 8, 2018 deadline.

Open enrollment for the 2018/19 academic year begins July 1, 2018 through September 8, 2018. Students can obtain a 100 percent refund one week before or on the first day of class. After the first day of class the medical coverage charge is non-refundable.

If you were enrolled in SHIP for the 2017/18 academic year and plan to remain enrolled for 2018/19, please review the changes to the policy on the Policy Year Comparison.

Please note that you will need to have your Student ID # in order to access the portal.  Questions regarding the Student Health Insurance Plan should be addressed to Katie Tewell, Executive Assistant to the Vice President for Student Affairs at
