STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE
UAF requires that all students taking 9 or more credits per semester carry health insurance. Please access the link below to read an important letter from our director about insurance requirements.
UAF has contracted with United Health Care Student Resources (UHCSR) to provide a comprehensive illness and injury insurance plan for students. Please see the links below for more information. Note: If you had this insurance last year, please review the policy because important changes have been made.
In order to get your Insurance card, you must create an insurance account.
Make yourself an account so you can check your claims and other important information.
