Step 11: Health Insurance

To help protect your health and wellness, all students are required to have health insurance. Please visit the Health Insurance web page to learn more about why.

USF-Sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan
All international students registered for at least one (1) course credit hour will be automatically enrolled in and charged for the USF-Sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan. You may read more about the Plan and what benefits it provides by visiting the Health Insurance for International Students web page.

Your U.S.-Based Health Insurance Plan
Students who already have a U.S.-Based Health Insurance Plan with coverage comparable to or better than the USF-Sponsored Health Insurance Plan may choose to retain their current insurance plan. Should you wish to do so, you must request a Waiver of the Health Insurance Requirement by submitting the online Health Insurance Waiver Form for International Students. The Fall 2019 waiver period is from July 1, 2019 until September 1, 2020.

Deadline: September 1, 2019 at 5:00 PM. You may Waive the Health Insurance Requirement Between July 1, 2019 and September 1, 2019 at 5:00 PM. If you do not waive this requirement, you will be automatically enrolled in and charged for the USF-Sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan.
