Student Health Insurance

​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 are due two (2) weeks prior to the start of coverage period and must be renewed each academic year.

Enrollment forms are also required to be renewed each academic year.

Students, for whom neither form is received at that time, will be automatically enrolled in Vermont Law School’s student insurance.

In order to waive the Vermont Law School health insurance requirement, you must have comparable insurance with a company within the United States; foreign plans are not accepted.
