General Information

Health insurance is mandatory for F-1 international students at Salt Lake Community College. Health insurance is available and optional for their accompanying dependents (spouse and/or children). SLCC requires health insurance to maintain and improve health and wellness for international students. Most students are not aware of the U.S. self pay health care system as they come from countries with national health care plans. It protects the international student in the event of an accident or illness.

SLCC requires health insurance for international students for several reasons:

  • Health care can be very costly in the U.S
  • The U.S. does not have a national health care plan
  • Health services may be restricted if you do not have health insurance

Health insurance is a mandatory requirement for international students on an F-1 visa. Health care can be very expensive in the United States and carrying a health insurance plan can help students to avoid unforeseen expenses in case of an accident or illness. SLCC provides a health insurance plan for international students through Renaissance Insurance, Inc.
