Student Health Insurance

Student Health Insurance Requirements

ALL international students holding a J1 or F1 visa, medical, on-campus Health Science, on-campus nursing, and undergraduate students are required to carry student health insurance while they study at GW.  These students will be automatically enrolled in the GW SHIP and must submit an opt-out waiver if they have another insurance plan that meets the required criteria. Those students not listed above, may voluntarily enroll in SHIP.

For more information on the GW SHIP or on mandatory health insurance, please email [email protected] or contact the Health Insurance Coordinator, 202-994-5300, option 5.
