Required Health Insurance
The University of Texas System Board of Regents requires that all international students holding an F or a J non-immigrant visa carry health insurance while enrolled at UTSA. Enrollment in the system-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) is automatic at the time of registration and the cost of the policy is included in the student's tuition and fee bill.

Students may be eligible to waive the cost of the SHIP if they are able to provide a comparable plan in accordance with the UT Board of Regents policy. Visit Health Insurance Waiver for the waiver requirements, process, deadlines and more.
Please note that insurance waiver requests granted in the past may not meet the requirements of the federal PPACA. We believe UT SHIP (Student Health Insurance Plan) is a good value for the coverage it provides, and it meets the requirements of the new law. We encourage UTSA students to remain enrolled in UT SHIP.
