Degree-seeking international students and exchange students with F-1 or J-1 nonimmigrant status are required to purchase ASU health insurance that includes repatriation/medical evacuation coverage in order to have adequate insurance coverage against illness and accident before being permitted to complete the registration process. Students must maintain ASU health insurance coverage throughout enrollment at the university, including periods during the summer when students are not registered. In limited circumstances, students may qualify for an insurance waiver.
|Note:||No waivers will be granted after the second week of classes.|
A waiver of the requirement to purchase ASU health insurance may apply in the following circumstances:

Students who have adequate health insurance by definition may purchase separate medical evacuation/repatriation insurance to meet the standard. This must be maintained while enrolled at ASU.
