Coverage for Summer

All students holding non-immigrant visas and enrolled in summer classes are automatically enrolled in UT SHIP. Non‑immigrant visa holders not registered for summer courses do not automatically have medical coverage.

If you would like to have health insurance during the summer semester while you are not taking any classes, then you may enroll directly with the insurance company. To enroll, please fill out the Enrollment Form - International Dependent. You must enroll during the summer open enrollment period. For information about how to enroll in UT SHIP, please see how to purchase student health insurance or contact our office.
