Required Health Insurance

The Board of Regents of The University of Texas System requires that all international students holding non-immigrant visas 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. The fee is automatically charged to your account when you register for classes.

This requirement applies to all students who are not U.S. citizens, lawful U.S. permanent residents, asylees, refugees or undocumented aliens.
