Dartmouth College International Student Insurance

General Information

Dartmouth College is a private, Ivy League university in Hanover, New Hampshire. The school was founded in 1769 by the Rev. Eleazar Wheelock, and it is one of the nine “colonial colleges” established in the Thirteen Colonies before the American Revolution. It was originally conceived for “the education and instruction of Youth of the Indian Tribes in this Land … and also of English Youth and any others.” However, because of its significant distance from any tribal territories, it had trouble gaining traction in the Native American community and quickly became an institution primarily for white settlers.

The college was at the center of the landmark Dartmouth College v. Woodward case in the U.S. Supreme Court in 1819. The New Hampshire legislature was attempting to strong-arm the university into becoming a public institution, which would allow the state governor to appoint the university’s trustees. The Court voted in favor of the school, strengthening the right of private institutions and charters to conduct business free from public interference.

The school’s color is Dartmouth Green, and its athletic nickname is the Big Green.

Notable Alumni

Dartmouth consistently appears on various lists of the highest-ranked universities in the United States. Alumni have gone on to become Congressmen, governors, Cabinet secretaries, Nobel Prize winners, Rhodes Scholars, Pulitzer Prize winners, and even a U.S. Vice President (Nelson Rockefeller, 1974-1977). Notable graduates and attendees of Dartmouth include Daniel Webster, Robert Frost, Dinesh D’Souza, Fred Rogers, Theodor Geisel (a.k.a. Dr. Seuss), Shonda Rhimes, and Mindy Kaling.

Dartmouth College International Student Insurance Requirements

Exchange Visitors

U.S. federal regulations require J-1 Exchange Visitors and their accompanying J-2 accompanying dependents to have health insurance. J-1 regulations require medical benefits of at least $100,000 per accident or illness, repatriation of remains coverage of $25,000, medical evacuation coverage of $50,000, a deductible of up to $500 per accident or illness, coverage of pre-existing conditions after a reasonable waiting period, and payment by the insurance company of at least 75% of the costs of medical care.  Insurance backed by the full faith and credit of the J-1 Exchange Visitor’s government will meet this requirement.

J-1 Scholars and Faculty

J-1 scholars and faculty who are funded as employees on the Dartmouth payroll are able to enroll in the college-offered plan. Dartmouth does agree to cover the cost for medical evacuation and repatriation plan for employees. The Atlas MedEvac plan will be a good option for providing the standalone coverage if needed. 

International Students

F-1 and J-1 students are automatically enrolled into the Dartmouth Student Group Health Plan. To waive this plan, students must have an insurance plan that is compliant with ACA requirements in the Hanover, N.H., area. Most international plans do not meet the requirements to waive, and J-1 visa holders are not permitted to waive.

Accompanying Dependents

Dartmouth College does not mention health insurance requirements for the international student dependents carrying an F-2 or J-2 visa. Dependents can find the available plans under each given section. The exchange visitor section does meet all the federal limits of coverage as required by the U.S. Department of State. It is recommend to contact your International Student & Scholar Office for further questions, as dependents may have to meet additional requirements only provided to the registered attendee. 

Please contact our office if you would like more information. You can also email your health insurance waiver or compliance form. This information may be subject to change based on a health insurance waiver or compliance form.
