Colby requires that all students have comprehensive health insurance coverage while enrolled at the College. All students must enroll in, or waive, Colby’s insurance option annually. A student may waive participation in the SHIP (Student Health Insurance Policy) plan by documenting that he or she has comparable coverage under another insurance policy. Documentation of coverage must be provided annually by fully completing the appropriate online waiver form. This form must be submitted by Aug. 1, prior to the beginning of the academic year. All students are sent an email in the spring with instructions and a link to the online form. Parents can access the health insurance registration page through the parent portal at myColby. No refunds will be granted after Sept. 15 of the academic year. For further information about the current SHIP Plan, please click here.
