Graduate Catalog 2003-2004
All graduate students are required to meet the health regulations in effect at the University. A health history form is sent to applicants by the Graduate College when admission is granted. The form must be completed and returned to Student Health Services. Graduates of the University who have a health history form on file are not required to complete another form.
All graduate students enrolled for eight or more credit hours at Bowling Green State University and all international students are required to have adequate medical insurance coverage. Students are automatically enrolled in the university-sponsored medical insurance program for the entire year once registration takes place. Domestic graduate students who already have coverage and wish to be exempt from purchasing the university-sponsored medical insurance or wish to be enrolled for less than one year must contact Student Health Services. International Students who wish to be exempt from purchasing the university-sponsored medical insurance or wish to enroll for less than one year must contact International Programs. Alternative medical insurance coverage must meet University minimum requirements in order to be acceptable. Students also have the option of purchasing coverage for their spouses and/or dependent children through the University plan. Further information is available from Student Health Services.
