Does the college offer health insurance to students?
- If the student is a full-time, undergraduate student - 12 credits or more - the Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan is automatically available to the student at a present rate of $880 per year. The premium is listed on the student’s tuition bill statement.
- Any full-time student enrolling with Molloy College in the spring semester will be charged a present rate of $570 for the balance of the policy year. Premiums are subject to change.
- All other part-time students taking and maintaining at least 6 credits are eligible to enroll in the Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan on their own. Please refer to the Philadelphia Insurance Companies website for instructions. The present rates are: $880 per year, or $570 for the spring semester.
- All other part-time students please note: there is a deadline for enrolling in the health insurance plan for the fall and spring semester
The health insurance I presently have, (through parents/spouse's plan/self) is ending. Can I enroll in the college health insurance plan?
- Students will be able to enroll after the enrollment deadline if they lose coverage under their parent’s plan, spouse's plan or employer plan.
Please refer to the Philadelphia Insurance Companies Inc. website for instructions and further information for this procedure.
I presently have health insurance. Can I waive the school health insurance?
The only way to waive the insurance is via the internet in the Lions Den Student portal, at http://lionsden.molloy.edu/ics or from the Philadelphia Insurance Companies website. You may call the insurance company directly with any questions at: 1.800.734.9326 Ext 9260.
What immunizations are required for entrance into the college?

- One rubella vaccine
- Two MMRs, (combined measles, mumps and rubella), at least 30 days apart

I don’t have any records of my immunizations. Where can I get them?
You may obtain these records from your:
- Health care provider
- High school
- Previous college you attended
Do I have to complete and submit the meningitis form?
- Yes. All commuter students must complete, sign and return the meningitis form. It is a New York state law to do so.
- It doesn’t matter what your age is, or if you have received the meningitis vaccine, or if you are not going to receive the meningitis vaccine, the form must be completed and submitted.
I am trying to register, (or drop/add a class), and I can’t because I have a student health services hold.
- If you have a student health services hold and cannot register, or drop/add a class, you need to come to, or call, the student health services office to see what is missing.
- You may be missing all, or part of your immunization records, or the meningitis form, or both.
- The student health services office must have your immunization records and your meningitis form on file in order for you to continue with registration matters.
