  • Heath Insurance (SHIP)
    Student Health Insurance Program (SHIP)

    The Idaho State Board of Education requires proof of valid health insurance as a condition of enrollment. This policy is mandatory for all Idaho public universities and colleges and applies to all degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate students physically enrolled for classes or completing other required degree work within the state of Idaho.

    The health insurance requirement applies to all international students enrolled at the Moscow campus or University of Idaho Centers regardless of degree-seeking status or credit hours. International students are required to purchase SHIP for themselves and their accompanying dependents, or provide evidence of comparable health insurance coverage that meets or exceeds the University of Idaho requirements. International students must complete a separate waiver process through the International Programs Office. Students who are covered by Medicaid will only be allowed to waive participation in the SHIP if the coverage is provided by the state of Washington or the state of Idaho.

    The University of Idaho Coeur d'Alene does not have formal student housing. There are, however, several apartment complexes, rental homes, condos, townhomes and homes for sale in the region. For a complete list of available options, here are a few suggested sites you can research:

  • Writing Center (NIC)
    The NIC Writing Center provides UI students with one-on-one appointments with helpful writing consultants.

    The primary goal of the Writing Center is to help students become better writers, not just immediately to compose better papers.  Writing Center consultants will help students become better editors of their own work so that they can draft clear, well-written papers, but consultants will not write, revise, or edit papers for students.

    Consultants can assist students better if students bring a draft of their work to the Writing Center at least a week before the assignment is due.

    Walk-in's are welcome, provided a consultant is available.
