International Students


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

We are no longer accepting waivers for the Fall 2015 semester. The Spring 2016 waiver and enrollment period will begin October 15th.
International Students that are registered for fall 2015 classes, currently have access to the online enrollment process through your MyBGSU account. 
  • Log into your MyBGSU account
  • Click on the Students Tab on the upper right side of the page
  • Click on Financials
  •  the Student Insurance Requuirment Link is the last link under Financials.  
  • You may choose to enroll into the health insurance plan for fall 2015 only, or you may choose to enroll into the plan for the full year.  
Please 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.
