Health Insurance

All full and part-time international undergraduate and graduate students on A, B, E, F, G, I, J, K, O, Q, R and V visas registered at RIT will be automatically enrolled in the RIT Basic Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Policy unless other wise exempted by RIT.*

What this means to you:

  • You will be automatically enrolled in RIT's student Accident and Sickness insurance plan upon your active registration. Your coverage will be activated by your registration status on a semi-annual basis and you will be billed on your student account accordingly.
  • The insurance plan coverage will include benefits for medical evacuation and repatriation.
  • Eligible international students who enter RIT under sponsored programs that include qualified medical insurance will be exempted from maintaining RIT's insurance. RIT's Undergraduate Admissions & Graduate Enrollment Services Offices will flag those exempted students and they will not automatically be enrolled in the plan.
  • Students exempted from automatic enrollment may enroll in the plan on a voluntary basis. A manual enrollment form (coming soon) is available for exempted individuals who wish to enroll in the plan. The cost of enrollment is listed on the enrollment form.
  • If you are insured under the 2013-14 RIT Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan and your eligibility ends due to graduation or otherwise leaving school, you may be eligible for continuing coverage.

Below are other companies offering student health insurance. However, not all products meet the new health care reform requirements and many have very limited coverage. You should carefully evaluate before dropping RIT's coverage. RIT is not endorsing any of these companies or their insurance products.

Information on property insurance and dental insurance for students is available on RIT's Global Risk Management Services website.
