Proof of Valid Health Insurance
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.
International Student Requirements
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 U of I requirements. International students must complete a separate waiver process through the International Programs Office.
