The Student Health Insurance Office manages the UT Dallas student health insurance plan, provides confidential claims advising services, and serves as an information resource regarding local healthcare providers.

Enrollment in The UT Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) is required of all international students holding non-immigrant visas and is made available to domestic students who wish to purchase the insurance coverage.
International students are automatically enrolled in the UT SHIP, and a charge for the insurance premium is placed on their tuition and fee bill. International students who are already covered by a comparable insurance plan that meets or exceeds the UT System requirements may request a waiver from the UT SHIP. The waiver application will be reviewed and students will be notified as to whether or not their current insurance plan meets the requirements. If approved, the cost of the UT SHIP will be refunded.
