All deadlines for forms and documents are listed by due date and should be returned to the corresponding office in the information below.

All incoming students are required to designate a tuition payment method and have several payment options. Please make sure to initial your payment choice and sign the form. A scanned or faxed copy is considered preliminary information only, and a hard copy sent in by mail is necessary. Please skip the Student ID number portion. (You will not receive an ID until you arrive on campus.)
IRS Form W-9S (PDF) (Student Only)
The United States Internal Revenue Service requires the university to collect the name, social security number (SSN), and dollar amount of all students’ qualifying payments and report that information on IRS Form IRS Form 1098-T. This information provides the IRS with a basis for amounts claimed by a taxpayer as qualifying expenditures for higher education tax credits such as the American Opportunity Credit. Even if you are not eligible for any education tax credits, IRS regulations stipulate that a 1098-T be issued for any student who has qualified charges, regardless of your eligibility for the tax credit.
If you decline to provide your SSN or ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number) or do not have a SSN/ITIN, please submit this waiver instead of the W-9S. Failure to provide HMC with a SSN may result in the student being fined by the IRS in accordance with Internal Revenue Code Section 6723 (PDF).
Since this form contains your SSN or ITIN, for security reasons, please DO NOT EMAIL the W-9S or attach the W-9S to an email. Please mail this with your Tuition Payment Agreement.
It is essential for you to complete the Roommate Matching form thoroughly and honestly (no parents peeking). Only a few people read the forms, and they are kept confidential.

Questions should be directed to the Dean of Students office at 909.621.8125 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This form collects the same information previously collected by the Room & Board, Parent and Emergency Data Information forms. The form is relatively short and should not take much time to complete. It asks for general information, family contact information, emergency contacts and meal plan choice. Questions should be directed to the Dean of Students office at 909.621.8125 or email@example.com.
**Please note that all International Students will be required to enroll in SHIP**
What is SHIP?
SHIP is a health insurance plan designed just for students attending The Claremont Colleges. The plan is available to protect your educational future. If you get sick or injured, insufficient health insurance can lead to financial hardships that can threaten your ability to attend class, pay tuition, get student loans or live away from home. Having health insurance helps to ensure that you are able to stay in school, so you can graduate and achieve your personal goals. SHIP is available to all matriculated domestic students and all international students attending on a student visa (F-1,J-1 or M-1).
Am I required to have health insurance?
Yes. All continuing students or newly matriculated students are required to have health insurance coverage. You will be automatically enrolled in SHIP, unless proof of comparable coverage is provided and a waiver is submitted by the waiver deadline date. If you have other insurance—such as coverage as a dependent under a parent’s or spouse’s insurance plan—and you do not wish to enroll in SHIP, you may submit a waiver application. Please note: International students are not allowed to waive SHIP.
What is a health insurance waiver application?
A health insurance waiver application is a form that you fill out if you have other qualifying health insurance and do not wish to be enrolled in SHIP. You can submit an online waiver application. As part of the waiver process, you are required to provide specific information about your insurance coverage, which will be verified by the school or a designated waiver administrator.
Does my other insurance qualify?
If you wish to waive SHIP because you have other insurance, benefits under that plan must meet the following requirements:
- Coverage must be continuous (no break or termination) for the entire academic year.
- Maximum lifetime benefit must be at least $500,000.
- Coverage must be effective prior to 08/27/2014.
- Deductible must be $1,000 or less per policy year.
Your insurance coverage will be verified. Students who are covered under a health insurance plan that does not meet all of the applicable requirements will not be allowed to waive out of SHIP.
What is my deductible is over $1,000 per policy year?
You can submit the Harvey Mudd High Deductible Form and upload it directly through the waiver portal on Ascension’s website.
Should I waive SHIP?
If you have other coverage that meets the waiver criteria, it is your decision whether to waive SHIP. However, here are some important things to consider first:
- SHIP may be less expensive than being insured on an individual plan or as a dependent on an employer group plan through your parent or spouse. When comparing costs, be sure to look at premiums, deductibles, co-payments and out-of-pocket maximums.
- SHIP has a local PPO provider network. If you have out-of-state coverage, or HMO or PPO coverage with a limited provider area, there may not be any network providers near school. You may have to pay higher out-of-network co-payments, deductibles or co-insurance.
Please note: If you waive coverage under SHIP, you are responsible for any medical costs you incur.
How often do I have to submit a waiver application?
Students who wish to waive out of SHIP must complete the online application once each academic year by the deadline date.
What happens if I don’t waive by the deadline date?
Students who do not submit a waiver application by the deadline date with be automatically enrolled in SHIP.
If my insurance coverage starts after the semester begins, can I get a refund?
If it is past the waiver deadline, your SHIP coverage remains in place and you will have to wait until next academic year to waive out of SHIP. No refunds will be issued.
What if I successfully waive out of SHIP, then lose my other coverage?
You may enroll in SHIP mid-year if you waived out but later lost coverage through no fault of your own, such as coverage that terminates due to loss of employment (by your spouse or parent) or by reaching an age limit set by the plan. This does not include coverage that has a predetermined termination date, expiration of COBRA eligibility or coverage that has been voluntarily or inadvertently terminated by you (by quitting a job or missing an enrollment deadline, for instance). To enroll mid-year after an involuntary loss of coverage, you must notify Student Health Services and submit proof of loss of coverage within 31 days of termination of said coverage. You will be charged the full cost of the term in which you are enrolling in SHIP. Please note: The deadline for waiving out of SHIP is June 27, 2014. If a waiver has not be approved by the deadline, you will be charged for the first installment in the July 1 billing. For more information, please contact Patricia Wang in Student Accounts at 909.621.8107 or firstname.lastname@example.org. General questions regarding health insurance may be directed to the Dean of Students office at 909.621.8125 or email@example.com.
