Insurance Fees

All Intensive English Program students are required by the University of Illinois to have health insurance.

Some students have health insurance through their scholarship or program. Our program offers a health insurance policy for F-1 students. The fees for this policy are listed below.  You can pay for this insurance policy online.

Students with other health insurance and students who are not F-1 do not pay for health insurance at the office. However, you must show proof of health insurance valid in the United States.

Your proof of insurance must include:

  1. Name of student
  2. Dates of coverage
  3. Sickness Minimum coverage of $50,000 USD per incident
  4. Injury Minimum coverage of $50,000 USD per incident
