International Students


At Bowling Green State University, we require our students to have health insurance.

The deadline to submit waivers for Spring 2016 has passed. Please contact our office with any questions.
You may review the policy information available on our website and at www.uhcsr.com 
If you have questions, please contact us at studentins@bgsu.edu     

We have tailored the UnitedHealthcare 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 who have coverage through approved policies will need to contact the Student Insurance Office, and submit their health insurance card, their student ID and health insurance policy information in order to complete a waiver. 

Newly arriving International students must complete the health insurance requirement and health screening requirement at their scheduled New Student Orientation.  

Thank you and best wishes for the upcoming academic year.
