2. Return the completed forms to the Health and Wellness Center on the 4th Floor/Main Building OR send to email@example.com by August 19, 2017.

3. Every Trinity student is required to have adequate health insurance that provides local coverage while attending school. Your options include:
- Enroll in Trinity’s student health insurance plan * OR *
- Provide proof of active insurance coverage by submitting your Insurance ID card with your health forms. (CAS students will need to submit a WAIVER if choosing this option to avoid being billed for the student insurance)
Immunization Policy and Religious/Medical Exemptions
- DC Law mandates that all students under age 26 have an updated immunization record on file BEFORE registering for classes. If you are submitting a waiver for religious reasons, please do so according to our Trinity Immunization Policy.
