Like other universities, the University of Montevallo requires international students to have health insurance prior to their arrival. International students must have a health insurance policy that meets federal law requirements [refer to US government document 22 CFR 62.14].

University of Montevallo offers a policy that is underwritten and administered by a subsidiary of United Healthcare, Global Care Basic Plan. This policy was selected by the University because the cost is low and the benefits are generous. The University does not profit from sales of this policy and it is the student’s responsibility to become familiar with its terms and benefits. All international students will need to visit the link below and choose to either enroll in the policy or waive out. Those that waive the policy will be prompted to provide proof of comparable coverage to ensure it meets federal law requirements.

About Health Insurance for International Students

NOTE: The deadlines to submit proof of health insurance are as follows: Summer Term Deadline: April 1st, Fall Term Deadline: August 1, Spring Term Deadline: December 1.
