Health insurance is mandatory for all ESL students with an F-1 or J-1 visa. The premium for coverage will be added to your student account each term. All dependents also have the option of choosing the plan offered through the University of Colorado Denver, but must be enrolled within 30 days of arrival in the United States. You must submit proof of health insurance that complies to University standard requirements. For more information on the policy, please visit the Student Health Insurance Web site.
