Welcome parents and students to Florida State University!


Every full-time main campus domestic student new or returning to the university must show proof of health insurance that meets the FSU Board of Trustee requirements prior to registration once each year either through completion of a waiver or purchase of the student health insurance offered through FSU. Part-time students enrolling for at least three credit hours may enroll in the student health plan. International students studying at FSU on a J or F visa must meet the insurance requirements whether they are full- or part-time students. Dependents on J visas must also meet insurance requirements. University Health Services administers the requirement for insurance coverage for the university.

United HealthCare Student Resources (UHCSR) is the provider for the university sponsored plans for the 2015-2016 academic year. Waiver dates, open enrollment dates and plan coverage dates are outlined below as well as the premium costs for the student plans. Post-doctoral fellows, visiting scholars and students at the Center for Intensive English Studies can also purchase the plan. See the information in the menu to the left. Plan brochures and summaries are at the third tab in the menu to the left.

Step by step instructions for meeting the immunization and health insurance requirements for enrolling in Florida State University are posted at uhs.fsu.edu. Click on: Health Compliance Forms. You will see Student Immunization Record and Healthcare Compliance Information. These are the pages to read if you read nothing else. Health insurance and immunizations must be on file to clear your record for registration for classes. Welcome again to the Florida State family. The Wellness Center staff is ready to assist as you transition to college life. Please let me know if we can make your move into the FSU support system a more positive and enriching experience.

There is a difference between the requirement to show proof of health insurance in order to be able to register for classes at Florida State University and using health insurance to pay for care rendered at the FSU Health and Wellness Center.

AR Due Dates:

Student purchases-Insurance premium payments are due on the day that financial aid is disbursed.  If financial aid is delayed, students do NOT need to call the health center to defer the payment.  Students do not need to make special arrangements for financial aid to pay health insurance premiums.  If the insurance charge is on the student's account when financial aid is disbursed, the premium will be paid by financial aid.  If there is sufficient financial aid to pay the whole premium, the student owes nothing more for insurance.  If there is not sufficient financial aid to pay the whole premium, the balance that is not paid by financial aid remains on the student's account and is the student's responsibility to pay.  The balance must be paid to zero before the student's next registration window opens or the student's ability to register for the next term will be blocked.

Post-doctoral fellow, visiting scholar, CIES student-Payment is due as soon as charges are posted to your account at Student Financial Services.  The carrier will be notified to begin coverage once payment has been verified by the Health Compliance office.


AR Due Date Notes

  • Insurance Premium Payment Due:  the day financial aid is disbursed
  • Financial aid delayed?  Do NOT call Health Compliance to defer payment.  It is automatic.
  • Not enough financial aid to pay the entire premium?  The unpaid balance stays on the student's account for the student to pay. 
  • How to avoid a registration block:  Have the premium due paid to zero before the next registration window is scheduled to open.
