The 2017–2018 Middlebury Institute Student Health Insurance Plan

Students at the Institute are required to have insurance.

Due to the experiential nature of our academic programs and for your personal health and well-being, we require all students enrolled in six or more credit hours during the fall/spring terms or four or more credit hours during the summer term to have health insurance. To meet the Institute's health insurance requirement, you must do one of the following:

  • Enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan offered through JCB Insurance Solutions. Enter "Middlebury Institute of International Studies" and follow the prompts from there.

  • Waive the Student Health Insurance Plan by providing proof of existing health insurance that is comparable in coverage to our plan. In the case of international students, government or socialized health care provided by your home countries is acceptable, provided that it includes the appropriate coverage in the United States. Enter "Middlebury Institute of International Studies" and follow the prompts from there.

This step is required each semester unless selecting the annual option when enrolling; the waiver is annual. The health insurance requirement should be satisfied by 4 p.m. on the first day of classes.
