​​​​​​​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Every student at Vermont Law School taking five (5) or more credits is required to be covered by a health insurance policy, whether it be a Vermont Law School policy or a comparable outside policy.

Distance Learning students and students taking fewer than 5 credits do not qualify for Vermont Law School health insurance coverage.

Vermont Law School will exempt students from purchasing a plan through Gallagher Student Insurance if they have a policy that is comparable to the plan offered. The student must complete a waiver request form and submit it online at: www.gallagherstudent.com/VermontLaw.

Waiver requests should be submitted well in advance of the start of the coverage period and must be renewed each academic year. The 2017-2018 Academic year deadline to submit the waiver request online is August 23, 2017 to avoid being automatically enrolled and charged for health insurance.
