- About Us
All full and part-time international undergraduate and graduate students (except those on H1B visas) registered at RIT will be automatically enrolled in the RIT Aetna Student Health Plan unless other wise exempted by RIT.*
What this means to you:
There are very limited circumstances under which a waiver of the RIT health insurance will be granted. For detailed information about the requirements to waive click here.
Insurance While on OPT
Please note that once you stop enrolling at RIT, you are no longer automatically enrolled in the Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Program. Unless you have an employer who will enroll you in their plan, we recommend that you purchase coverage.
While ISS does not endorse any particular health insurance plan, we are aware of the following providers that have F-1 OPT health insurance options. These companies are members of our professional organization, NAFSA: Association of International Educators.
