Attention Full Time Students!
|Deadline to submit Spring Health Insurance Waiver is February 4, 2013
If you currently have your own health insurance, please remember to submit your Student Health Insurance Waiver form to the Business Office in the Student Services Building each school year to avoid being charged for health insurance.
The State of New Jersey requires all full time students with 12 or more credits to have health insurance. All Gloucester County College students who are full time will automatically be charged for health insurance through Bollinger Insurance.

Those who have their own health insurance can waive this fee by printing out a Student Health Insurance Waiver form and submitting it to the Business Office no later than 10 days after the semester begins. After this date, the fee cannot be removed.

Frequently Asked Questions
- Do I need to fill out a waiver every year?
Full-time students must complete the form at least once per year. Students usually complete the form in the Fall.
- Do you have to fill it out if you are part time?
No. Part-time students do not get charged the health insurance fee. Only students with 12 credits or more need to hand in a waiver.
- I submitted the waiver last Fall. Do I need to submit it again for the Spring semester?
If you completed the form in the Fall AND if you are NOT being charged in the Spring, you do not have to complete the form again. This is usually the case.
- Since I submitted the waiver last Fall, why am I being charged in the Spring?
Typically, health insurance waivers that are completed in the Fall will be in effect until the next school year. If you are being charged a health insurance fee for Spring, you MUST hand in a waiver in order to have this fee waived.

- I plan to attend in the Fall, but not the Spring. Do I still have to pay the full cost?
Students who are full time in the Fall and do not have their own insurance must pay the full amount. However, the student will be covered under the health insurance until August of the next year.
- I submitted the waiver last Fall, but I no longer have insurance. What should I do?
If you are full time in the Spring and would like to enroll in the health insurance though the college, please contact the Business Office to have your waiver removed. If you no longer have insurance after the tenth day of the semester, please contact Bollinger Insurance directly to purchase their health insurance.
