International Student Insurance Policy

Mandatory Health Insurance at Baylor University

All international students at Baylor University are required to have unlimited coverage in medical insurance coverage. Enrollment in the mandatory Baylor University Health Insurance Plan is automatic at the time of registration, and the cost of the policy will appear on your tuition and fee bill as ’Required Insurance’. The fall student insurance premium will appear on the fall semester bill; the student premium for spring and summer will appear on the spring semester bill. Accompanying family members will be billed in accordance with posted dependent rates at these times.

Health coverage is provided through Academic Health Plans. In addition to health insurance the international student policy covers medical evacuation and repatriation of remains in case of death.

Insurance Waivers

  • A student whose family or employer already provides health insurance may be eligible to qualify for a waiver. Proof of insurance is necessary.
  • The insurance advisor will evaluate previously existing policies on a case by case basis.

No waivers of insurance can be processed after the 12th class day of the long semesters or 4th class day of each summer session.
