International Student Health Insurance

International students are required to enroll in the Weber State University international student health insurance plan provided through Relation Insurance. Learn more on the official PPM.

  • Health Insurance is required for all International Students and Scholars in an F or J visa category.
  • Students will be automatically enrolled each semester in the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) when they register for classes. Embassy or government-sponsored students must provide proof of health insurance coverage in order to be exempted from automatic enrollment.
  • Scholars must provide proof of health insurance coverage before beginning any scholar related activities with their department.
  • If you qualify for a waiver (see below), you must submit a waiver request each semester. The waiver must be submitted online before the Waiver Deadline. All waiver applications must be approved before coverage can be waived.
