International Students

We understand that healthcare and health insurance in the U.S. can be confusing.

To help you understand some of the basics, we have created this presentation with basic information on health insurance and how to use the Student Health Insurance Plan.

Aetna has also created a short video on health insurance in the US: WelcomeU International Student Health Insurance Facts

The University of Arizona requires all international students on non-immigrant visas (degree and non-degree seeking, resident or non-resident tuition) showing at least one registration unit, to carry the Student Health Insurance Plan unless one qualifies for an exemption.

International students who arrive 4 or 2 weeks prior to the start of fall or spring classes can enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan.
