This policy describes health insurance requirements for graduate students.

(B) Policy

(1) Health Insurance

All graduate students are required to meet the health regulations in effect at the university. 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 and international 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 the Student Insurance Office. 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.
