Health Insurance Requirement
Colorado School of Mines is committed to the health and well-being of all of its students. Good health is essential to academic success. The Colorado School of Mines has required students to have adequate health insurance as a condition of enrollment since 1991. No distinction is made for part-time versus full-time status. Degree-seeking U. S. Citizen and Permanent Resident students who demonstrate coverage that meets CSM requirements may waive the SHBP provided by CSM using the online enrollment/waiver system. Information on coverage requirements can be found the "MEASURE UP" page.
