- About Plattsburgh
International students who wish to waive the health insurance fees are required to follow the procedure listed on this webpage every year.
Submission of a waiver does not guarantee that the health insurance and fees will be waived. SUNY Plattsburgh reserves the right to deny waivers based on their incomparability with international student health insurance coverage offered through the SUNY system.
End of the second week of classes
Fees will not be waived until after the second week of classes. After the second week of classes students should verify that the charges have been removed by logging into BannerWeb and reviewing their student account.
If you usually use the SUNY Plattsburgh health insurance during the academic year, but intend to be in your home country between June 15 and August 15, you may request that the summer health insurance coverage be waived. You must bring your plane ticket to the Global Education Office showing your departure before June 15 and arrival after August 15. Once we have reviewed your travel plans and have determined that you are eligible for a waiver, we will request a refund of your health insurance premium for the summer.
