Health Insurance

Ramapo is pleased to announce that it has joined other State institutions to now provide a College-sponsored student health insurance plan.  We feel that now more than ever this will benefit our students as we have been suffering through the current global health crisis caused by a global pandemic. In addition, students asked for this service, and we listened, and have now made available health insurance coverage for all full time students.  The plan being offered for 2020/2021 academic year is through Aetna Student Health.  Below is a summary of plan details:
