Health Insurance

UAF has a mandatory health insurance plan for international students in F-1 and J-1 status.  The charge will be automatically added to your student account each semester.  If you wish to have the charge removed, you will need to submit the health insurance waiver form (PDF) with documentation of health insurance coverage.  See the Health Care and Insurance section of the Handbook for specific information.


Coverage periods are:  Fall semester:  August 25-January 14; Spring/Summer:  January 15-August 24.  There are no refunds for the summer vacation period.
