Student Insurance

Last updated on Jun 29, 2022


Overview

California College of the Arts is committed to ensuring all students have the appropriate resources to uphold their physical health and wellness.

Per CCA policy, all students who are registered at 12 or more units per semester (9 units per term for all graduate students) are automatically charged for and enrolled in the CCA student health insurance plan unless they submit an approved insurance waiver that meets all of CCA's minimum requirements, by the established deadline (which is typically aligned with the end of the Add/Drop period).​

Students who are enrolled part-time, are ineligible for the CCA student health insurance plan, and are encouraged to review available options on the insurance marketplace.

The CCA student insurance plan includes:

  1. Health Insurance Coverage (through Aetna)
  2. Dental and Vision Insurance Coverage (through Anthem Student Advantage)
  3. One Medical Membership (healthcare provider)

Coverage dates:

  • Fall: August 1 - December 31
  • Spring: January 1 - July 31
  • Summer (MFA in Comics students only): June 1 - July 31

Property & Renters Insurance

CCA recognizes the importance of ensuring the safety of personal property. While CCA does not cover students' lost, stolen, or damaged property, we strongly urge all families to contact their insurance agents, check their homeowner's policies, and/or to consider purchasing renter's insurance.

CCA does not recommend or endorse any individual insurance company. However, please note that Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. provides information regarding personal property coverage.
