Graduate Appointee Insurance Enrollment

Western Michigan University graduate appointees will receive notice from the Graduate College explaining the subsidy provided by WMU to assist paying for health insurance.

How to enroll

Prior to accessing the insurance enrollment survey, your appointment must have been processed by HR, and you must have received an email invitation from the Graduate College. Know what kind of appointment you have received: research discovery, research application, or teaching.

Once you have received your email invitation, Log in to Health Manager with your BroncoNet ID and password.
