All international students on F, J or any other non-employment-related visa status are required to have
health insurance that meets the university’s minimum standards. These students
are automatically enrolled in the university-sponsored insurance plan
and the cost is billed to their financial account.
Students with their own
comparable insurance may submit a waiver application, along with their
plan benefits in english and proof of payment. If the waiver is approved,
the insurance charge will be refunded. Waiver deadlines for international students are September 15
(fall term), February 15 (spring term), and June 15 (summer sessions).
Waiver applications submitted after the deadline will not be considered and
no refunds of insurance premiums will be possible. Waiver applications
must be re-submitted every fall term. Waiver standards and application forms are found on the Health Center Web site. For additional information, contact the Dowell Health Center at 410-704-2466.
Towson University is committed to protecting the privacy of personal health information of students, clients or employees through compliance with the Federal Privacy Standard of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
