Frequently Asked Questions


The Spring/Summer waiver period is 11/1/19 – 12/1/19

Welcome to the Davidson College Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP). Davidson College requires that all students maintain student health insurance coverage as a condition of enrollment. You may apply for a waiver if you already have coverage under an alternate health insurance plan that meets certain minimum requirements. Travel plans or plans that require you to pay for treatment yourself and then apply for reimbursement will NOT be acceptable for waiving the Davidson College plan.

On-Line Waive Process

You may request to waive out of the SHIP if you have comparable alternate health insurance.  Please have an electronic copy of your current insurance card to submit a waiver request and follow the instructions to apply for the waiver of SHIP.
