All F1 and J1 visas holders are required to have a valid health insurance policy while enrolled at Longwood University. Health care is expensive in the United States, and insurance will help to cover medical expenses in case you become sick or are injured. You must have valid health insurance policy at all times while attending Longwood University. If you willfully refuse to purchase a health insurance policy, your visa may be terminated.
We require that you purchase the "Budget" or "Select" insurance plan through International Student Insurance. These plans are highly recommended and affordable. Once you purchase your insurance policy, you must present the proof of coverage receipt to the Office of International Affairs.However, if you are already covered by an international insurance policy, please contact the Office of International Affairs to determine if you need to purchase any additional insurance.
You can learn more about coverage, benefits and exclusions on this website.
Contact Patti Trent, Director of International Admissions and International Student and Scholar Services, if you have any questions about insurance plans.
