All international participants on F-1 and J-1 visas must either enroll with the university’s default health insurance plan or request a waiver of the requirement by providing evidence of purchased an alternate health insurance plan that meets the university requirement listed. The waiver form must be submitted by the published deadline at the beginning of every semester of enrollment. There are no exceptions to the health-insurance requirement. ​

Important Note: ​

  1. Students who do not meet the waiver deadline will automatically be enrolled in university default plan, and a charge  will be placed on the student’s account.​
  2. The cost of the university default plan per day is based on the age of the insured.
