Student Health Insurance Instructions

To Students New to our Consortium for Fall, 2012, Welcome!


Incoming students must indicate their student health insurance choice in two places.  Students need to indicate whether they want to enroll in the GTU student health insurance plan or waive out in WebAdvisor, the GTU on line registration system.  This information is recorded in our GTU student information management system and linked to your GTU bill.

Berkeley and the Bay Area

Berkeley is an exciting place, with much to offer. These two links are provide a full range of information: City of Berkeley, and Berkeley Visitors Bureau.

Life at GTU

Your experience at the Graduate Theological Union equips you, as no other place can, to conduct critical and creative scholarship that addresses the most urgent needs of our time.  And it takes you to the San Francisco Bay Area--home to virtually all of the world's religions and diverse cultures.  This community weaves a rich tapestry of celebrations, art forms, cuisines, and worship against a backdrop of inspiring natural beauty.

Student Life

To be sure, GTU doctoral students range in age from the mid-twenties to early seventies, and have families and/or extensive obligations within their communities, denominations, and/or professional networks. Not all live in Berkeley or the immediately surrounding communities, and many find it necessary to work one or more jobs to support their doctoral studies. Under these circumstances community or “student life” is neither entirely residential nor fully institutionalized; often students themselves must build community intentionally.
