Dartmouth Student Group Health Plan

Dartmouth College requires all students listed as active, including those on a leave term or not taking classes, to have a certain level of health insurance coverage. To ensure that all students are adequately insured, all active students are automatically enrolled into the DSGHP and their tuition account is charged the premium, every academic year that they are eligible.

Students who have their own health or insurance plan may apply to waive the automatic enrollment into the DSGHP by completing the waiver process by July 1st of each year. Please see "DSGHP Waiver Information" below.

Students who wish to be enrolled into the DSGHP do not need to do anything, as enrollment is automatic. Students may also enroll their qualifying dependents by completing the Dependent Application.


If you are undecided on whether to waive the DSGHP coverage, please see "Resources" below.
