Current International Students

International Students at Scripps

International students are an integral part of academic and cultural life at The Claremont Colleges. We value the diverse perspectives that the international community brings to the college community toward the advancement, depth, and breadth of our global society. The International Advisor, Primary Contact Dean, and Student Affairs staff are among the many resources available to support international students at Scripps College. Please feel comfortable coming to us with any question large or small; we are here to support you so that you can thrive personally and academically. While enrolled, Scripps Communities of Resources and Empowerment (SCORE) is a place on campus that we hope you will feel comfortable calling “home,” hanging out and engaging your peers in meaningful dialogue.

Medical and Health Inventory

New students must have their physician complete a more comprehensive health form, located here. Once completed, please follow instructions for uploading or sending the form to SHS.

If you are a returning student and do not have a completed health form on file with SHS, you will be expected to provide the form prior to fall arrival. Further questions regarding immunizations and vaccines should be directed to Student Health Services. For the 2021–22 academic year, all forms should be submitted no later than August 1, 2021, to avoid move-in delays.

SHIP Insurance

All international students are required to carry SHIP Insurance.

The Claremont Colleges are excited to announce our partnership with Gallagher Student Health beginning in the 2021–22 academic year. Gallagher Student Health will assist us with the management of the plan and the administration of the waiver and enrollment process. Gallagher also assisted the Claremont Colleges Insurance Committee in making the decision to renew with Aetna Student Health effective August 30, 2021, through July 31, 2022.

See the SHIP Insurance webpage for more information.
