The W&M Student Health Center requires new degree-seeking students to complete a Health Evaluation Form by the posted deadline (June 1 for Fall admission or January 10 for Spring admission). The form is available under Student Requirements and requires a signature by a physician. If the form is not submitted by the end of the grace period (August 31 for Fall admission or February 28 for Spring admission), a late fee will be charged to the student account.
Student Health Insurance: All full-time students must enroll in the W&M-endorsed student health insurance plan or submit a waiver by July 31 each academic year. More information is available under Student Requirements. Students are automatically enrolled in the W&M-endorsed student health insurance plan unless a waiver request is received by the deadline (July 31 for Fall admission or December 31 for Spring admission). The online waiver request form for the next academic year is usually available in mid-June and the online enrollment form is usually available in early July.
If you enroll in the W&M-endorsed insurance plan, you will receive a bill through your student account. VIMS/SMS does not pay the bill for you. An allowance for health insurance is included in your stipend and accrued over the course of the academic year, but you are responsible for paying the student health insurance premiums up-front at the beginning of each fall and spring semester. Please plan accordingly. Refer to the website for the rates.
