Student Health Insurance Requirement
The University of Idaho requires all full-time, fee-paying, degree-seeking undergraduate students enrolled in 12 or more credits and graduate/Law students enrolled in 9 or more credits to submit proof of health insurance as a condition of enrollment. Students subject to the requirement may choose to rely on personal health insurance or enroll in U of I's Student Health Insurance Program (SHIP). Personal health insurance must meet the minimum requirements or substantial compliance standards to qualify.
International students enrolled in 1 or more credits are automatically enrolled into the University of Idaho Student Health Insurance Program (SHIP) unless their sponsoring government provides health insurance as part of their educational program.
International students are enrolled in U of I's Student Health Insurance Program (SHIP) if insurance is not provided by their sponsoring government.
