Immunization and Health Examination Report:
According to Connecticut state law, all students born after January 1, 1957 and entering an institution of higher education must show proof of immunization for measles and rubella (German measles). You can not register for classes until the university’s Health Services Office receives proof of your immunization. If you are planning to live in the residence halls, you will not be permitted to move in until you have received the meningitis immunization.

UNH Health INSURANCE FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS:
In the U.S. the cost of medical care is very high. To protect against high and unexpected medical expenses which may occur as a result of an accident or illness, the university requires that all international students participate in the University Health Insurance Plan.
If you are accompanied by dependents, you will need to enroll them in a health insurance plan also. Information regarding this plan, enrollment, and cost is available at the International Services Office. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
For the 2013-2014 academic year, UNH will offer all full-time international students a health insurance plan. Students will be charged for the cost of this plan on their fall tuition bill. The cost of the plan will be $1,340.00 for the year.
Students who already have insurance can decline the UNH coverage by providing proof of existing coverage. The deadline to decline the insurance is August 30, 2013. If you would like to decline this plan, you must click on the link HERE to decline your UNH Student Health Insurance from the Bollinger Insurance Company.
Most overseas insurances don’t work in the U.S.A. If you purchase your own health insurance from your country, you will still be required to pay the UNH Health Insurance fee. Don’t purchase your own health insurance plan unless you wish to have secondary coverage.
Students who are enrolled less than full-time are NOT eligible for the UNH Student Health Insurance plan.
In the United States, medical/health care costs are extremely expensive. Medical/Health Insurance is a way to decrease the costs of medical expenses that will occur if an individual becomes sick, injured, or needs prescription medication. Because of the high costs of healthcare in the United States, ALL F-1 & J-1 VISA INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS are required by the University of New Haven to purchase Health Insurance.
