As a condition of enrollment, the University of San Francisco requires students to have a health insurance plan, both to protect against unexpected high medical costs and to provide access to quality care.
Undergraduate and graduate students are required to have health insurance and will be automatically enrolled and billed for the USF-sponsored student health insurance plan.
|All undergraduate domestic students||Nine (9) units or more||Automatically enrolled and charged for health insurance|
|All graduate domestic students||Six (6) units or more||Automatically enrolled and charged for health insurance|
|All international students||One (1) unit or more||Automatically enrolled and charged for health insurance|
