Student Health Insurance. All full-time students are required to maintain adequate health insurance, either under your own private plan or under the Student Health Insurance Plan sponsored by the College. All students must visit www.gallagherstudent.com/Mitchell to enroll in a plan or sign a waiver if you choose to maintain medical coverage in a plan other than the College-sponsored plan. Students who do not complete the waiver by the tuition due date will automatically be enrolled in the College-sponsored health insurance plan and billed accordingly.
Financial Responsibility Agreement. All new incoming students are required to sign and submit the Financial Responsibility Agreement Form which may be viewed here.
Athletics. If you’re going to be an athlete during the 2017/2018 academic year, complete and submit your Student Athlete Health Forms. Please note that the NCAA requires all first year and transfer student-athletes to have a physical within 6 months of the start of their first season.
"Fit” is the modern buzzword of the college search process. And frankly, rightly so. As you consider your college experience, we encourage you to look for a place that feels right. It’s also a good idea to make a list of the qualities and characteristics that make a college and you a winning combination.
If you are looking for a college that:
Gets to know and understand each student as a uniquely talented individual
Identifies potential and encourages students in very intentional ways
Fosters growth in each student, giving them a foundation for life and career success
Is small enough to deliver on the promise of a personalized experience
Goes beyond “career services” and offers a progressive 4-year career development model, partnering with local businesses and nonprofits for professional experience
Promotes an inclusive culture that encourages students to experiment in new clubs and activities
Is nationally recognized for its academic support systems, from professional content tutors (not students) to proven comprehensive support for students with learning differences
Connects students to service opportunities that impact their world
Is in a location that offers access to New England’s natural places and some of America’s greatest cities
