Student Health Insurance
Health insurance is mandatory for all international F-1 and J-1 visa holders. All international students will be automatically enrolled in the University System of Georgia's Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) underwritten by UnitedHealthcare. Click here for a flyer.

International students may enroll in the BOR approved PGH Global plan in order to “waive out” of the SHIP mandatory policy since their coverage needs are different than domestic students. International students that do not complete the waiver process by the assigned deadline each semester will be charged for the SHIP mandatory policy.
