International Students

We understand that healthcare and health insurance in the U.S. can be confusing.

In addition, the student insurance carrier, UnitedHealthcare StudentResources (UHCSR), has the following resources available to you:

Exemptions for International Students

The University of Arizona requires all international students on non-immigrant visas (degree and non-degree seeking, resident or non-resident tuition) showing at least one registration unit, to carry the Student Health Insurance Plan unless one qualifies for an exemption.

Early Arrival Coverage Options

International students who arrive in the U.S. 4 or 2 weeks prior to the start of Fall or Spring classes have the option to enroll in early arrival coverage for the Student Health Insurance Plan.
