Health Requirements


Health Forms Due Dates

  • Undergraduate students for Spring term: January 15
  • Post Baccalaureate students: May 15 
  • Undergraduate students for Fall term: July 1


To protect and ensure the health of everyone in the campus community, we have established certain health requirements that allow us to do our best for you. These requirements must be met before your arrival if you wish to occupy campus housing or register for classes. It will take more time than you think to get a physical, collect your health information, and complete the required immunizations, so please get started as soon as possible.

The Health Form includes the following requirements and is due by July 1:

  • Health history
  • Physical examination
  • Immunization record
  • Tuberculosis screening
  • Consent for treatment

Student Health Insurance

All full-time Bennington College students must be covered by a health insurance policy. College-sponsored insurance plans are not available to us. Student must provide their own insurance coverage. For more information please see our Student Health Insurance webpage. 

International students must be covered by the IFS Secure Plus plan provided by Insurance For Students. With this plan, most campus services will have no copays, deductibles, or coinsurance (see additional information on Health Insurance tab). Students must sign up for the IFS Prime Plus Plan by August 1 for coverage starting August 15.
