The Office of Graduate Student Services is open at regular business hours from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
University policy mandates that all students maintain health insurance in order to avoid potentially difficult and costly medical situations and to ensure that medical services outside the University Health Center are covered. Wesleyan provides the following options for health insurance coverage:
- Gallagher/Koster: Please see the
Gallagher/Koster web site for policy information and rates: https://www.gallagherkoster.com/. Graduate students selecting this plan are
responsible for enrolling by the enrollment deadlines posted on the University
Health Services web site.
- CIGNA: This plan is limited to full-time, degree-seeking
graduate students. It is not available
for non-degree seeking students such as foreign language teaching assistants,
German exchange students, Ford Fellows, etc. Enrollment is processed through the Wesleyan
Office of Human Resources. For information about the CIGNA plan and
rates: http://www.wesleyan.edu/hr/health/health.html. Please note that graduate students are not eligible for dental insurance.
- Wesleyan graduate students are eligible to access healthcare services at the University's Davison Health Center. Services are available during academic sessions. For more information about the Davison Heatlh Center: Davison Health Center Services.
Students may elect to provide their own insurance and must submit proof of insurance to the Office of Graduate Student Services. Students will be required to sign an insurance waiver form. Failure to provide proof of insurance and submit a signed waiver form will result in automatic enrollment in the Gallagher/Koster health plan. This one-time charge will be billed to the student’s account.
