Students: Important Insurance Information

All students enrolled at Stetson University are expected to have adequate health insurance to cover them while attending the University.

If you do not currently have health coverage, a Student Injury and Sickness Plan is available to all eligible students through United Healthcare Student Resources. This plan provides coverage from Aug. 12, 2014 through Aug. 11, 2015.  Information regarding this plan is shown below.

International Students: Per university policy and the Cultural Exchange Act, International students with a student visa who have not been granted permanent residency status, are required have a health insurance plan that will adequately cover their medical and health needs in the University/Central Florida area while they attend the University.  Students who do not already have adequate insurance coverage when they begin attending Stetson University are required to enroll in and purchase the United Health Care Student Insurance plan or obtain a similar adequate plan.  Proof of an adequate insurance plan must be furnished to the Stetson International Learning Office.  Phone: 386-822-8165 / Email: world@stetson.edu
