Additional Information on health insurance:

All international (non-U.S. citizen) undergraduate students are automatically enrolled in the Student Health Plan unless they obtain a waiver by presenting evidence of insurance coverage from one of three different commercial providers. The three different commercial providers are listed in the Health Insurance Comparison Chart below. This document compares the costs of these alternative plans versus the cost of the Bard plan and includes a table showing significant plan differences between one such plan and Bard’s.
