Student Health Insurance

Because all Elizabethtown College students are required to maintain health insurance coverage, our students are automatically enrolled in and charged for the student health insurance plan.
Enrollment in the plan occurs on an annual basis. Additional information about the plan can be found at First Student.

If you already have equivalent coverage and choose not to be covered through
the College’s plan, you will be given the opportunity to opt out of the plan.

Please note that Elizabethtown College requires all international students to purchase the Health and Accident Medical Insurance Plan provided by the College.

Interest-Free Payment Plan

Our goal is to help make a college education as affordable as possible by limiting your need to borrow and reducing your debt burden. The interest-free monthly payment option, offered in cooperation with Higher One, allows you to pay expenses in affordable, interest-free monthly payments instead of larger semester-based payments.

This service is available for a $55 annual enrollment fee.

For more information about the Tuition Pay Monthly Plan, call Higher One at 800-635-0120 or visit them online at

  • 100 percent of your term tuition and fees, or
  • 60 percent of your insured term tuition and fees, if the withdrawal results from a psychological/emotional condition.
