Required Health Insurance

The Board of Regents of The University of Texas System requires that all international students holding an F or a J non-immigrant visa must maintain comprehensive health insurance while enrolled at any UT System institution. The Board of Regents permits our institution to charge students the fee for enrollment in the system-sponsored student health insurance plan. Students will be billed automatically for the insurance plan in their tuition and fee bill.

This requirement does not apply to a non F or J visa holder. If you have been assessed an insurance charge and do not fall under this category, please contact the Insurance Advisor.

Waivers

Students may be eligible to waive the cost of the student health insurance plan. 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.
