Health Insurance Policy

As a condition of enrollment, the University of San Francisco requires regularly enrolled students to have health insurance, both to protect against unexpected high medical costs and to provide access to quality care. The following groups of students are required to have health insurance:

  • All full-time undergraduate domestic students registered for 9 credit hours or more (excluding students in Certificate programs)
  • All graduate domestic students registered for 6 credit hours or more (excluding students in Certificate programs and Online programs)
  • All international students and scholars registered for at least 1 credit hour (this includes undergraduate, graduate, law students, and non-degree students)
  • Students who reside in the University-operated housing (including undergraduate, graduate, law students, and non-degree students).*

Hard Waiver Health Insurance

Students will be automatically enrolled in and have their accounts billed for the University-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan. Students who are able to prove that they have coverage comparable (equal or better) to the University-sponsored plan under a United States-domiciled health insurance company may waive this requirement each academic year. Domestic students may waive this requirement through the online waiver form found at Health Promotion and Services.

International students must waive the University sponsored student health insurance plan in person at the Health Promotion and Services office (UC 5th Floor) to ensure that their health insurance policy meets the minimum insurance requirement established by United States federal government regulations.

Students are expected to maintain comparable health insurance coverage at all times during their waiver period. However if a student's health coverage is dropped, it is the student's responsibility to contact Health Promotion Services to discuss his or her options.

If the waiver is approved, the student's account will be credited accordingly. If the online waiver is denied, students may file an online waiver appeal form with Health Promotion Services. Students can also call to discuss the appeal by phone at (415) 422-5797.

If a student waivers in Fall, the waiver is good for Fall and Spring semesters. However, students, who waive in the spring semester, must waive again for the following Fall semester. Students who have waived the plan in a given year or semester, are eligible to re-enroll in the USF-sponsored health plan for the following semester. These students must contact Health Promotion Services office to re-enroll in the USF-sponsored health plan.

*Students who reside in University operated housing and are registered for fewer than 6 credit hours (including graduate, law, and non-degree students) or students who commence their enrollment in the summer session are not automatically enrolled in and not billed for the University-sponsored health plan. These students must purchase the coverage online or apply for a waiver in order to comply with the USF health insurance policy.

More Information

For the 2021-2022 academic year, the USF-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan premiums will be published on the USF website when the rates are available. USF health insurance requirements, plan benefits, online waiver request form, waiver period, and deadlines will be published at Health Promotion Services. For further information, please contact Health Promotion Services at hps@usfca.edu or (415) 422-5797.
