Students who are enrolling in KU on-line courses WILL be charged the insurance fee. You must do this waiver every semester you do not want the KU insurance.


Permanent Resident, U.S. Citizen and Non-Immigrants other than F-1, F-2 and J-1, J-2

If you are a permanent resident, U.S. citizen or currently in any non-immigrant classification other than F-1, an F-2 enrolled in classes at KU, J-1 or J-2 (i.e. H-1, L-2, TN etc.) you are not  automatically enrolled in the KU international student insurance plan; you are not required to show proof of insurance; and you do not need to complete a waiver form.

If you are changing your status, please notify the International Student Services Insurance Coordinator: issinsurance@ku.edu.

NOTE: Because all J-1 Visitors are required to have health insurance for themselves and their J-2 dependents for the duration of their stay, regardless of enrollment, J-2’s who enroll in KU classes are not automatically billed for the insurance. Contact issinsurance@ku.edu to sign up for the KU UHC insurance.
