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 is available for exempted individuals who wish to enroll in the plan. The cost of enrollment is listed on the enrollment form.

There are very limited circumstances under which a waiver of the RIT health insurance will be granted. ISS is providing the list of insurance companies below to consider as an alternative to cover a gap in coverage after graduation. The products offered by these companies are not appropriate for individuals while they are enrolled students at RIT. 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.
