  • Required Health Insurance Coverage - Undergraduate and Law Students  

    All Hamline University undergraduate and law students are required to carry some form of sickness and accident insurance coverage, either your own or the Hamline-sponsored student insurance plan.

    If you are an international student and you prefer not to have the Hamline-sponsored health insurance plan, please contact the International & Off-Campus Programs office to confirm that your alternative insurance meets requirements.  

    All students covered under the Hamline-sponsored health insurance plan are responsible for submitting their own insurance claims and payments. 

    Waiving Hamline-Sponsored Insurance Coverage

    If you are a domestic student, and you have your own health insurance coverage, you may waive the Hamline-sponsored student health insurance plan at the time of registration by entering your insurance company and policy number into Piperline. If you do not waive this coverage, you will be automatically enrolled in (and billed for) the policy sponsored by Hamline University.

    If you have waived coverage through the Hamline-sponsored health insurance plan, but wish to "opt-in" at a later time, you should contact Student Accounts at (651) 523-3000.

    Information for Graduate Students

    If you are a graduate student, you will not be automatically enrolled in the Hamline-sponsored student health insurance plan. However, graduate students registered for at least 4 credits in a degree-seeking program are eligible to request health insurance coverage through Hamline.  (You may "opt-in" to the plan via the link below.)
