The University of San Francisco requires a mandatory hard waiver health insurance for the following students:
  • All full-time undergraduate domestic students registered for 9 units or more (excluding the College of Professional Studies and Branch Campuses)
  • All international students on an F-1 or J-1 visa and registered for at least 1 unit (this includes undergraduate, graduate, and law students)
  • Students who reside in the University-operated housing (including graduate and professional 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 enrolled for classes in the fall semester will have insurance coverage from mid-August to mid-January. Students enrolled in the spring semester will have insurance coverage from mid-January to mid-August.

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 at ( ). International students must waive it in person at the Health Promotion and Services office (UC 200) to ensure that their health insurance policy meets the minimum insurance requirement established by United States federal government regulations. If the waiver is approved, the student's account will be credited accordingly. Students are expected to maintain comparable health insurance coverage at all times during their waiver period. If the online waiver is denied, students may appeal the waiver denial at the Health Promotion Services office.

Other Students

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 for the summer session or apply for a waiver in order to comply with the USF health insurance policy.

Graduate Students

Graduate and professional students who reside in the University-operated housing are not automatically enrolled in and not billed for the University-sponsored health plan. These students must purchase the coverage or apply for a waiver in order to comply with the USF health insurance policy.

Students registered for at least 6 units in the School of Law, College of Professional Studies or another graduate program can elect to purchase the University-sponsored health insurance plan online.

More Information

For the 2009-10 academic year, the Chickering Group, an Aetna company, will administer the USF-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan.

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  or (415) 422-6809.
