Bethel Student Government Fee
The Bethel Student Government fee is charged per semester when a student is enrolled full time (12-18 credits). This fee is determined by the Bethel Student Government (BSG).
An overload fee is charged for each credit enrolled over 18 credits in a semester. No overloads are permitted during interim. Note the eligibility requirements in the Academic Information section of this catalog.
A student who is registered for full time during the semester will not be charged to audit a course. The student will be charged the audit fee per credit if not enrolled full time during the semester. The free audit does not include students who are billed at the Post-baccalaureate or Teacher Licensure rates.
Student Health Insurance
Students enrolled in the College of Arts & Sciences are required to report that they have health insurance with a minimum of $50,000 coverage for each accident or sickness. Student health insurance can be through a family plan, an individual plan, or the accident and sickness plan that Bethel provides through Student Assurance Services. Student athletes are required to have health insurance that meets the NCAA requirement minimum of $90,000 for each accident or injury and does not exclude intercollegiate sports accidents or injuries.
Each year students must complete an online waiver form to meet this important requirement. If the waiver is not completed by the deadline, the student will be automatically enrolled in the plan Bethel is making available, and the yearly premium will be billed to their student account. Note: Charges for this student health insurance plan are not refundable.
To provide health insurance information, students complete their waiver form through Blink > Banner icon > Student tab > Student Health > Insurance Waiver Form.
