Heath Insurance

University of Wisconsin System policy mandates that all international students shall secure personal health insurance, except for students sponsored by the governments of Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. Documentation/proof that a student has purchased health insurance is required as a part of the visa interview at the Embassy/Consulate. International students must maintain health insurance as along as they are students at UW-Platteville. International students who cannot present proof of health insurance will not be allowed to register for classes. The UW-Platteville International Student Services Office will assist international students in obtaining insurance through Student Assurance Services, UW-Platteville's preferred provider.
