Health Insurance Waiver
All International Students and J-1 Scholars are required to have UW System approved health insurance coverage. International students and J-1 Scholars must purchase the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) for themselves or file a qualifying waiver. Waivers will only be approved for International Students and J-1 Scholars who meet one of the criteria listed under the INSURANCE SECTION on this Waiver Application. Individual and private insurance plans (including Marketplace plans) DO NOT qualify for a waiver. Qualifying waivers must be filed with the campus by the established campus deadlines. All completed Waiver Applications must be submitted on an annual basis, along with a copy of the front and back of the health insurance ID card and/or written verification of coverage.
