Health Insurance

All students attending classes at the Monterey Institute are required to show proof of health insurance. Obtaining health insurance through MIIS is optional, however, students who do not have proof of insurance will be required to enroll into the Monterey Institute’s health insurance program. If you are covered by a personal health care plan during the summer, then you will need to "waive" the insurance option online.To waive OR enroll into the MIIS insurance plan, please visit the website for the Office of Student Services. 

Personal Expenses

The estimated student budget (above) does not include all expenses such as credit card or other consumer debt and living expenses for a spouse and/or dependents. The category of personal expenses includes laundry, household supplies, and entertainment. You should prepare a personal budget to anticipate your financial needs.
