All international students are required to carry the University Student Health Insurance policy unless you have equal to or greater coverage from another US based company. Foreign-based policies are not accepted. UC insurance will be included on your tuition bill each semester.
For information on the UC Student Health Insurance and for a list of other insurance plans you can choose, see: Insurance
If you find another policy, you will have to “waive (say no to) UC insurance.” If you do not waive the UC insurance, you will be billed for it. The fall 2017 deadline to waive UC insurance is September 15th. For instructions on how to waive UC Health Insurance, see: Waive UC Insurance
