Washington Administrative code requires that international students on an F-1 or J visa maintain adequate health insurance while attending the University of Washington. All matriculated international students in F-1 or J-1 status at the University of Washington are required to purchase the University of Washington Student Health Insurance every quarter they are enrolled in courses. There are some exceptions where UW will waive the requirement for a student – see below for details.
