All students attending Willamette University half time or more are required to carry health insurance. Willamette University automatically places students on a third party insurance carrier policy. Student health insurance is billed annually at the beginning of the academic year and appears on your first statement for tuition and fees. If you have coverage under another plan you can go online (http://www.eiia.org/willamette) after July 1, 2010 to waive out of Willamette's student insurance plan. This plan must be waived by September 23, 2010 if you do not need the insurance coverage for the 2010-11 academic year. If you waive out of the insurance plan please review your student account on QuikPAY, or JASON, to verify that the health insurance waiver has been credited on your account. For further information about health insurance please contact the Student Insurance Office at 503-370-6972.
A nonrefundable $50 application fee is required only if students apply for admission by submitting the Common Application through standard postal mail. There is no fee for applications submitted online.
A nonrefundable advance deposit submitted by students who have been accepted is due by May 1, which is National Candidate Reply Date. This guarantees an entering student a position in the incoming class, and on housing and registration rosters. This deposit is credited toward the student’s first-semester tuition bill.
All students living in a residence hall or fraternity are required to participate in the Willamette Meal Plan Program. The Willamette Meal Plan has been designed with flexibility to meet the unique needs of each student. The meal plan program has two parts. Part I consists of "all you can eat" Meal Plan dinners from Sunday through Friday and brunch on Saturday. Part II is a Meal Plan Points program, which offers four different Points options. Points meals are breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday, dinner Saturday and brunch Sunday. Food at these meals is offered "a la carte."
Meals are served throughout the school year in three locations: Goudy Commons, Kaneko Hall, and the Bearcat Cavern in the University Center (Monday through Friday, breakfast and lunch only). No meal service is provided during Thanksgiving break and winter and spring vacations.
