J1 Student Interns

The US Department of State (DOS) requires all J1 Student Interns to have insurance.  J1 Student Interns are eligible to enroll for The University of Arizona Student Health Insurance Plan with coverage taking effect the date they arrive to the United States through the date of departing the United States plus two days to allow for any circumstances that may hold up the actual departure. You may not change coverage during this period. Coverage dates are based on travel itinerary. J1 Student Intern may be charged an additional 30 days of coverage, with no refund, if departure documentation is not provided at time of check-in.
