International students are required to provide evidence that they have health insurance that will cover them the entire time they are a student at the University of Dayton. As an international student, you are required to demonstrate coverage by completing a waiver.
The University does not have a health insurance plan for students in which students can enroll. Students are expected to purchase a health insurance plan from a US provider that meets the standards set below and their individual needs.
HOW DO I COMPLETE THE WAIVER?
The waiver is a short survey that can be accessed through Porches. You will be asked to provide details about your health insurance policy. If you do not have health insurance, please purchase it before accessing the waiver.
WHEN MUST I DO THIS?
The deadline to submit this information is approximately two weeks after the first day of classes. You will receive a separate email with a specific deadline. Do not delay. Do this as quickly as possible. If you do not submit this information, you will be prevented from registering for classes next semester. This will result in the automatic termination of your I-20 and subsequently your immigration status.
WHAT KIND OF HEALTH INSURANCE SHOULD I BUY?
Your health insurance must meet these established minimums of coverage:
- Covers at least a minimum of $250,000 per condition.
- Has a deductible of $500 or less per individual.
- Provides $50,000 or more for medical evacuation to your home country.
- Provides $25,000 or more for repatriation (removal of remains after death) to your home country.
- Is in effect for the entire time I am enrolled including vacations.
