Health Insurance Information

International Students attending Shippensburg University must be able to document enrollment in health care coverage with a student health care insurance company. Although we do not require a specific company, we do believe it is necessary for your policy to provide a minimum coverage that is comparable to an insurance plan available to all of our students.

Insurance Information:

The following requested insurance information should be included within your policy or on the back of your insurance card:

You must verify that your insurance coverage includes the following


You must also submit a photocopy (both front and back) of the identification card your insurance company has issued to you. You may email the copy of your insurance card to April Ashway-Railing ( AIAshwayrailing@ship.edu) or stop by the International Programs Office, Ceddia Union Building Room 221, with your insurance card no later than the Friday of the first week of classes.

Failure to provide proof of valid health insurance will result in a hold on your account which will prevent scheduling classes and/or applying for graduation.
