Health insurance waiver/request deadline: September 21, 2023
Cost for 2023-24: $2,617

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 waive the insurance charge through the link in Workday. To waive the health insurance charge, log into Workday and navigate to your Finances dashboard. Under My Accounts, select "More" to view all the links and select the link "Health Insurance Waiver or Enroll." You will be redirected to our health insurance partner's site where you can follow the directions to complete the waiver. For more detailed instructions, please refer to the Workday Student Resources page.

Processing time for the waiver will be 24 to 48 hours. If students do not go online to waive this fee by the specified deadline, they will be enrolled in Hamline's health insurance plan and will be responsible for the cost of that coverage. Students must waive the health insurance each academic year. No waiver will be carried over from one academic year to the next. 

If you have questions about waiving or enrolling in this health insurance, please contact the Student Accounts Office. For information specific to insurance coverage, please visit United Healthcare Student Resources (, or call Counseling and Health Services at 651-523-2204.

Please note that Hamline's policy governing the waiving of this student health insurance is different for international students due to visa regulations.
