Student Insurance Program


Welcome to the Bowling Green State University

Student Insurance Office

At Bowling Green State University, we require our students to have health insurance.
The 2017-2018 Online Waiver and Enrollment Process will begin  May 25, 2017.
The deadline to complete a Waiver or Enrollment is August 15, 2017.
  • All domestic students taking 8 or more credit hours on main campus will need to complete the health insurance requirement each academic year.  Correspondence, Online, and Distance Learning Classes are not considered to be "on main campus" for the health insurance requirement purpose.  Please see the Domestic Student section of this website for more detailed information.
  • If a student currently has adequate health insurance and they do not wish to purchase/enroll into the BGSU/Aetna Student Health Plan, a waiver must be submitted through the student's MyBGSU account before the posted Waiver/Enrollment deadline.
  • If a student does not have other health insurance, they will want to review the Aetna Student Health Plan details and choose to Enroll into one of the plan options available within their MyBGSU account before the posted deadline.
  • All International students are required to enroll into the BGSU/Aetna Student Health Plan.  International students may qualify for an exemption if they have a U.S.based policy that is sponsored by their government or have a US employer based plan.  Please see the International Student section of this website for specific waiver requirements.
