College Insurance Plans

While applying to safety schools and easy scholarships are some ways students protect themselves, there’s a different kind of precaution that is invaluable to college students and recent grads but often overlooked: insurance.

Why? Many students view insurance - whether it's health, property or auto - as an unnecessary expense that they'll rarely use and would rather put those funds toward other uses (books, pizza, etc.). In actuality, the cost of a one-year plan will pay for itself countless times over if you are injured, are robbed or get in a fender bender. Not too hungry for take-out now, are you?

College students are often covered by their parents’ insurance plans until they graduate but for students needing individual plans or wanting additional coverage while in school, there are myriad options available. Check out our guides to health insurance, property insurance and auto insurance for the best and most economical ways to protect yourself and your belongings at school before it's too late.
