Health Insurance

Health insurance is mandatory for all students who are registered for class at UW-Madison. All international students must enroll in the UW-Madison Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) or file a qualifying waiver by September 15 for fall students or February 15 for spring/summer. 

Waivers will only be approved if you meet the criteria listed on the SHIP Waiver Application. Read the form carefully before you purchase other health insurance. If you do not qualify for a waiver, you are required to enroll in SHIP. 

For additional information read the Health Matters section of the Information Booklet and review SHIP's information for international students.
