Student Health Insurance Plan

U.S. federal regulations, and the University of Dallas, require that all F-1  visa holders have health insurance to help cover the expenses of unexpected medical issues while residing in the US.  The university has contracted with Wellfleet (Cigna Network) through Academic Health Plans to provide a policy that complies with federal law.

All F-1 visa holders will be automatically enrolled in the health insurance policy and related charges will be added to the student's account. The annual cost is approxmiately $1,800. Each student will be billed in 3 installments over the course of the academic year.
