Time limits do apply for these changes, and may not be allowed past a certain date.

PLEASE READ:

While it is important to recognize that having health insurance coverage is important (it is a requirement for attending Great Falls College), there is no requirement that students have this particular plan, so if you are able to find another plan that suits your needs, you are certainly welcome to choose that plan.  While we believe everyone should be insured to guard against financial peril in case of an unexpected illness or accident, we trust our students to make intelligent choices for themselves and their families.
