International and American Language and Culture Program (ALCP) students and their dependents must contact the International Programs Office (IPO) to complete a separate process when they enroll for classes. To obtain this form, please visit the IPO at 901 Paradise Creek Street, LLC Building #3, Ground Floor, or the IPO website
If the student has chosen to purchase another insurance plan that meets all requirements, the insurance must be in effect and approved BEFORE classes begin for the semester/session and must remain in effect with no policy lapses for every day the student remains in the U.S. as a UI student, including during summer break. If the student fails to maintain the comparable insurance, they will be required to purchase SHIP with possible penalty fees.
Verification of Health Insurance Information
The University of Idaho will conduct audits of student health insurance information to verify the existence of adequate personal health insurance coverage. Students who are discovered to be uninsured or to have insurance that does not meet the minimum requirements will be enrolled in SHIP for the semester to comply with the SBOE policy requiring valid health insurance as a condition of enrollment.
