Waiver Information

2021 - 2022 Dartmouth Waiver Information:


Students will receive an email from the DSGHP office, as well as from Gallagher Student Health (to their Dartmouth email address), when the waiver is available to them individually.  If an email has not been received by 6/4/21, please send the DSGHP office an email at Dartmouth.Student.Health.Plan@Dartmouth.edu letting them know, so they can update anything needed to make sure you are able to access the waiver system.

Students who have their own health or insurance plan may apply to waive the automatic enrollment into the Dartmouth Student Group Health Plan (DSGHP) by completing the waiver process by July 1st (to avoid late fees) of each academic year.  (For Exchange students, the waiver deadline is one week prior to their first term at Dartmouth for each academic year they are enrolled.  Please contact the DSGHP office for information on this.)

Students who wish to be enrolled into the DSGHP do not need to do anything, as enrollment is automatic. Students may also enroll their qualifying dependents by completing the Dependent Application. (See DSGHP Forms for Dependent Application)
