Required Health Insurance Coverage

  • Please submit proof of health insurance via fax or scan as soon as possible to avoid problems with registration.
  • Please submit details about your coverage in English or provide a translation with your documents if documents in English cannot be obtained.
  • Proof of adequate health insurance coverage in the United States must be submitted by July 15, for fall term. It is better if you can send it by June 15.
  • Proof of adequate health insurance coverage must be submitted December 15, for spring term. It is better for you and for us if you can send it by Nov. 15.
  • Health insurance documentation must clearly show the dates of coverage. You must be covered from the beginning of orientation until the end of finals for the semester you are here.
  • Failure to provide this proof will result in cancellation of currently enrolled courses; the student would then be in violation of the J-1 visa requirements.
  • Students who cannot provide coverage from home will be required to purchase health insurance at SIUE.
