Insurance for Students
The University of Alaska Statewide System has endorsed an optional student injury and sickness insurance plan through United Healthcare. Students must carry six or more credits, with three credits in on-campus courses, to be eligible for the plan. An alternate optional insurance policy is available for students enrolled in distance education who do not meet the three credits on-campus requirement. Information can be found by directly contacting United Healthcare online here and/or by calling 1(888) 344-5989.
Alternatively, information can also be obtained by calling UAA’s Student Health and Counseling Center at (907) 786-4040.
Students on F1 and J1 visas need to contact their international student advisor for insurance requirements and applications.
