Student Health Insurance
Sterling College requires all students to have health insurance, and new students are automatically enrolled in the Sterling College Health Plan offered by Gallagher Student Health.
If you already have health insurance and do not wish to enroll in the Sterling Health Plan, you must officially OPT-OUT by submitting a Health Insurance Waiver Request.
For Students Entering in Summer 2019: The waiver is open on May 19, 2019 and closes May 31, 2019
For Students Entering in Fall 2019: The waiver is open on June 5, 2019 and closes August 15, 2019
For Students Entering in Spring 2020: The waiver is open on November 6, 2019 and closes January 20, 2020
Students who do not complete the waiver will be automatically enrolled in Sterling’s student health insurance plan through Gallagher Insurance and billed for the annual coverage.
How to Submit a Health Insurance Waiver Request:
- Go to www.gallagherstudent.com/
- On the left toolbar, click “Student Waive/Enroll”
- Log in (if you haven’t already) or create an account if you are anew user
- Click the “I want to Waive/Enroll” button
- Follow the instructions to complete the form
- Your Student ID is: 00000 + the last 4 digits of your Sterling ID#

There are seven residences on campus. Apart from North House and Houston House, which house 12 students each, each residence hall is home to approximately 20 students. These residences are set up in classic dormitory style, with shared bathrooms on each floor. All houses are co-ed, and each student’s self-identification is respected.
Every residence hall has at least one CA – Community Advisor – who is there to support you when you need it.
Here’s a quirky video too!
