    Spring Only: February 19, 2016
    Estimated Cost per Semester (15-16): Fall $1,007 and Spring $1,165

    Undergraduate Students: All Undergraduate students registered for at least 8 credits are required to have health and accident insurance. These students are automatically enrolled in and charged for Hamline's health insurance coverage.

    If students have their own policy, they must go online through Piperline to waive their insurance coverage. Students should allow 48 hours for processing and then check their student account on Piperline to verify that the waiver credit appears. If there are questions or concerns, please contact Caryn Dahl at 651-523-2531 or 800-888-2182.

    If students do not go online to waive this fee by the specified semester deadline, they will be enrolled in Hamline's health insurance plan and will be responsible for the cost of that coverage.

    **Note that the insurance waiver will be in effect until a student leaves the university or requests in writing that the waiver be canceled.**
    ***Students must be enrolled in at least 8 credits for the fall and spring semester to keep the insurance year round.***


    Postbaccalaureate and Graduate Students: Postbaccalaureate students registered for at least 4 credits and graduate students registered for at least 4 credits in a degree-seeking program are eligible to request health insurance coverage through Hamline. Qualified students must go online through Piperline to request coverage every academic year. The cost of the coverage will be added to their student account. Students should allow 48 hours for processing and then check their student account on Piperline to verify that the charge has been added. 

    The deadline for requesting health insurance are listed above.

    **Note that postbaccalaureate and graduate students must request coverage every academic year. No student is automatically re-enrolled from one year to the next.**

    ***Students must be enrolled in at least 4 credits for the fall and spring semester to keep the insurance year round.***

    International Students:  Please note that Hamline's policy which governs the waiving of the student health insurance policy is different for international students due to visa regulations. Please visit the website of the International and Off-Campus Programs for more information about the International Insurance and Waivers.  The deadline for students to submit their waiver form is listed above.
