Requesting & Submitting the IU Health Insurance Waiver
All enrolled international students at IU South Bend are automatically charged for the mandatory IU International Student Health Insurance plan premium each Fall and Spring semester/Summer session. The amount is billed to their student account by the Office of the Bursar in two installments: once for the fall semester, and once more for spring/summer.
In order to waive out of the automated IU health insurance premiums, a student with alternative health insurance coverage must:
1) establish that certain basic coverage requirements (outlined in the Requirements section) are met, and
2) ) submit the waiver request in iStart (see the Instructions section) each fall and spring semester throughout enrollment if electing coverage under an alternative health insurance plan. Students must be prepared to upload evidence of this alternative coverage at time of waiver.
