University of North Texas international students holding non-immigrant visas must carry UNT approved student health insurance coverage throughout their time at UNT.

All international students are automatically enrolled in the UNT Student Health Insurance plan. Students may waive the Student Health Insurance plan under limited circumstances.

  • Waiver may be granted if student is enrolled in a U.S. employer provided health insurance plan (spouse or parent is employed by a U.S. company and student is enrolled in the company provided insurance plan.) 
  • Waiver may be granted if student is sponsored by a foreign government recognized by the United States or certain international, government-sponsored, or non-governmental organizations.

Academic Health Plans (AHP) facilitates the waiver and health insurance activation process for UNT students. 

You will be automatically billed for health insurance in the Fall and Spring semester as part of your UNT tuition and fees. The Spring insurance charge covers both Spring and Summer enrollment. 

Please visit Academic Health Plans (AHP) for more information.
