Student Health Insurance Plan

The University provides two different Student Health Insurance Plans. (stdins@uw.edu or 206-543-6202 for questions). Visits outside Hall Health have higher deductibles.

Insurance can be purchased:
(1) In Autumn Quarter for the full year. If you purchase it on a yearly basis you will have insurance for all four quarters even if you are not registered in Summer, though higher Hall Health fees apply if you are not registered; or
(2) Quarterly, which only provides coverage for the duration of that quarter.

  • Payment is due when tuition is due.
  • The deadline for enrollment and cancellation is the 7th calendar day of the quarter.
  • Enroll through MyUW.

International Students must sign up for SHIP to register.
