Health Insurance for International Students

Insurance Requirement

Lawrence requires all international students (F-1 and J-1 student visa holders) to have sickness and accident insurance. The cost of health care, especially hospitalization, is very expensive in the United States.

Each F-1 and J-1 international student at Lawrence is automatically enrolled in the program and billed for the cost unless the insurance waiver form is submitted by July 1 each year. 

To waive insurance, you must demonstrate that you have U.S. coverage that is similar to Lawrence's plan and submit the waiver by July 1. How to submit the waiver:
