Schedule of Fees

Health Insurance Enrollment/Waiver

Every student is required to complete a Health Insurance Enrollment/Waiver each year that they attend W&J. All students need to complete this, whether or not you have health insurance coverage. If you do not have health insurance, you are required to enroll in the College's health insurance plan.

PLEASE NOTE:  Even if you are covered by a private health insurance plan, the College health insurance premium will be assessed to your bill until you file this waiver with the Business Office.

The Health Insurance Enrollment/Waiver is part of the Gateway form on the Forms page.

Tuition Refund Insurance and Student Life Assistance

Washington & Jefferson College is pleased to offer the GradGuard™ Tuition Protection Plan as a benefit  to our students and families featuring plans and rates not available to the general public..

This coverage expands our refund policy by reimbursing up to 100% of tuition, room, board and other fees for covered withdrawals at any time during the semester.

Please remember the deadline to enroll is the day before classes begin each semester.

Learn more at or by calling 1-866-724-4384.
