Students enrolled in on-campus courses are required to carry health insurance for themselves and for their immediate families during their time of study at Dallas International and must provide proof of coverage before arriving on campus. (Though U.S. immigration law does not require F-1 visa students to carry health insurance, Dallas International’s requirement supersedes the F-1 regulations.)
J-1 visa professors/researchers/students are required to have health insurance meeting minimum standards as listed in the table below.
To explore health insurance options, consider the following:
- Search online for “International Student Insurance in U.S.” or “Student Health Insurance in U.S.”
- International Student Insurance
- ISOA (1-800-224-1180)
- Edusure (1-800-338-3924)
NOTE: For U.S.-based insurance organizations, international students should identify themselves as “international” to view appropriate health coverage.
