Health insurance is required for all students.
If you are the parent of a junior or senior and in previous years have declined coverage or enrolled in the student health insurance option using Parent CNAV, please note that we have a new process. See the information below, which applies to all Gettysburg students.
All students are charged for the student health insurance plan on the June tuition bill each academic year.
Students will receive a credit on their billing statement for this charge if the student provides coverage information for a private health insurance plan. This process must be completed online every year by the student.
Declining the student health insurance plan
If your student will be covered by a private health insurance option during the academic year, your student must enter plan information in their Student Dashboard under Health Insurance.
Enrolling in the student health insurance plan
If your student would like to enroll in the student health insurance option, they must select Student Health Insurance in their Student Dashboard under Health Insurance.
The deadline for students to enroll in the student health insurance option is June 15 for first-year students and the first business day in August for sophomores through seniors.
If your student does not respond
If your student has not completed the Health Insurance portion of the Student Dashboard by August 1, your student will automatically be enrolled in the student health insurance option.
Credits are applied weekly through August for those students who decline coverage.
