Third-party Insurance Coverage & Academic Training

All students registered with 12 credits including one face-to-face on campus class per semester are automatically enrolled in the BYU-Hawaii Student Medical Benefit with no additional charge.

International students are required to add all their dependent(s) to the BYU-H student medical plan for a minimal fee. If you drop below the full-time credits required without an approved reduced load, you and your dependents are automatically terminated from the student medical benefit.

In compliance with immigration regulation 22 C.F.R.& 62.14, for J Exchange Visitors, BYU-Hawaii requires students on Academic Training (AT) to show proof of Health Coverage (receipts, contracts etc.) to International Student Services at by September 30th, 2014.

  • While on Academic Training you will not be eligible for Student Medical Benefits. For all other cases of AT, you are required to show proof of Health Insurance coverage through a third party insurance company.
  • If you have coverage through your employer or family, you need to submit a letter of credibility for your coverage to Beth Martin for verification.

Failure to purchase & submit proof of Health Insurance Coverage to International Student Services will put your immigration status at risk!
