International Student Health Insurance

All international students enrolled in on-campus courses at GIAL are required to carry health insurance for themselves and their immediate families during their time of study at GIAL, and must show proof of coverage before arriving on campus.

International students who will be certified by GIAL for an F or J visa during their studies must have a health insurance policy that meets minimum standards, as listed below.  International students on a visa should identify themselves as international students if signing up for a U.S.-based health insurance policy.  Visit the Student Health Insurance page for a short list of possible providers.
