Academic Health Plans

Proof of Coverage

Students who arrive on campus with health insurance that provides coverage during their academic program will not have to purchase AHP, but the student must show proof of coverage.  Copies of health insurance forms should be submitted to the International Student Services Office upon arrival to campus for approval.  Submissions must show the student’s name, dates showing current coverage, and that the health insurance will cover them in the United States.

Returning students must resubmit this information each semester.  International students will automatically be enrolled in the AHP plan if sufficient proof of coverage is not provided to the International Student Services Office by the deadline. 

Submissions for proof of coverage may be done during the Arrival Confirmation process.
