  • You are under the sponsorship of a foreign government, its agency or embassy that is responsible for the student’s educational expenses, including a health insurance policy.
  • You are under the sponsorship of an international agency or company that is responsible for the student’s educational expenses, including a health insurance policy for the student that will be enforced during the entire time that you are enrolled in the college.
  • You are accompanied to the U.S.A. by your spouse and/or dependent child(ren) under 18 years of age who have been granted F-2 visas and who will be staying with you as the principal F-1 visa student.

  • You reside in the U.S.A. with your parents. You and your family have purchased a family medical insurance policy that covers all of you while you are in the U.S.A.

Given the specifics of what SHIP covers, we will have to review all the submitted materials to make sure that requirements are met.
