This student insurance policy requires health insurance for all international students, student enrolled in a clinical program, undergraduate students registered for 9 or more credit hours, and most graduate and professional students. Students who do not have their own private coverage are automatically enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan, which is offered by United HealthCare. More information regarding this plan will be available soon. Students who have coverage and opt out of the UAB SHIP must complete an online waiver through the Patient Portal.
