International Students


To Enroll

At Bowling Green State University, we require health insurance coverage for our students.  

We have tailored the United HealthCare Insurance plan to offer the best coverage for our students at a fair price.  For more information of the plan details, or to answer any questions that you may have on this requirement, please go to www.uhcsr.com (type in BGSU as your school) or contact the Student Insurance Office by calling 419-372-7495 or emailing us at studentins@bgsu.edu

All International Students, regardless of credit hours, are required by the University to enroll into the BGSU/UnitedHealthcare plan, with the exception of those with approved coverage provided by their government embassy, or approved coverage provided by a U.S. based employer. Students that have coverage through approved policies will need to contact the Student Insurance Office, and submit their health inusrance ID card, their student ID and health insurance policy information in order to complete a waiver.  All waivers must be completed prior to the published deadline.  We cannot accept waivers completed after the deadline.   

Thank you and best wishes for the upcoming academic year.

To Waive

International Students will need to complete a hard-copy paper waiver form that can be obtained by contacting the Student Insurance Office.   

Filing a claim at any time with the BGSU-offered Student Insurance Plan (including during the waiver period) will be deemed acceptance of the policy and the full costs of the insurance will be billed to you.  In other words, if you use it, you buy it.
