International Health Insurance

The vendor for the international insurance policy is Wellfleet.

All undergraduate and graduate international students are automatically enrolled in the international insurance policy and premium costs are added to a student’s tuition fees each fall and spring semester.

International students who have comparable coverage through their own insurance provider can waive this insurance coverage by completing an online waiver on Wellfleet’s website. Students must complete an online waiver by the waiver deadline each fall and spring semester in order to waive insurance coverage.

Waiver/Enrollment Period Deadline Dates
Spring 2024 Semester February 9, 2024
Summer 2024 Semester June 29, 2024
Fall 2024 Semester September 18, 2024
