International Student Health Insurance Plan

All international students are permitted to register for classes at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) only after demonstrating that they hold medical insurance coverage which meets the guidelines set by the Florida Board of Governors Regulation BOG 6.009 and FAU Regulation 4.009. International students with F-1 and J-1 status are required to maintain continuous insurance coverage throughout the entire duration of their association with FAU (including any period authorized for academic training or authorized vacation or leave).  International students beginning enrollment in the fall semester must show proof of insurance for the full academic year, including the summer semester.  Students beginning enrollment in the spring or summer semesters, must have coverage extending from at least the beginning of the term to the third week of August. Misrepresenting or willfully failing to maintain appropriate medical insurance coverage will result in serious consequences for the student.

All international students must provide proof of acceptable insurance coverage in order to register for classes.
