International Students

At Bowling Green State University, we require our students to have health insurance.
The spring 2021 semester student health insurance enrollment is available on your MyBGSU web portal, if you have the 'student insurance requirement' on your CHECKLIST

United Healthcare Student Resources' insurance plan is customized to offer the best coverage to our students at a competitive price.  

Newly arriving International students must complete the health insurance requirement and health screening requirement at their scheduled time during New Student Orientation.  Both the health insurance requirement and health screening must be complete prior to the first week of classes.

BGSU Student Health Insurance is provided by United Healthcare Student Resources.

Be sure to include your BGSU student ID number in your correspondence.

All International Students, regardless of credit hours, are required by the University to enroll into the BGSU/United Healthcare Student Resources plan, with the exception of those with approved coverage that is 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.  No waivers will be accepted after the first day of classes begin.
