Student Health Insurance Plan 2016-2017
Fall Waiver Period is 8/1/16 through 9/15/16
All registered International students taking one (1) or more credit hours are required to participate in the Health Insurance Plan. International students are automatically enrolled and the premium will be added to their tuition bill. All international students with U.S. based employer and embassy plans are eligible to waive the health insurance plan as determined by the SHSU Student Health Center.
***TRAVEL INSURANCE POLICIES ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR WAIVERS***
International students who do not waive coverage are automatically enrolled and the charge will appear on the tuition bill. No changes will be made to student’s account after the waiver deadline.
If you are a current student WITH a current waiver, you must still apply for the insurance waiver each fall and spring semester.
To file a waiver starting 8/1/2016, please follow this link.
