International Student Health Insurance

FGCU International Student Health Insurance Guide 

Health Insurance is mandatory for international students as required by Florida law. All international F1 and J1 students are required to provide proof of valid health insurance. If you prefer to purchase health insurance yourself, following is a list of preapproved carriers and plans

  • Each semester, a hold will be placed on student accounts until proof of insurance is provided. (Note: Student Athletes do not need to provide proof of insurance. The Athletic Department will provide student athletes with insurance information.)
  • Students will not be permitted to register for classes or continue enrollment unless they comply with the insurance requirements.
  • Insurance must provide continuous coverage for the entire period the insured is enrolled as an eligible student - including annual breaks and summer sessions during that period. Payment of benefits must be renewable.

Coverage dates must meet one of the following options
