- About Plattsburgh
ll international students within the SUNY system are required to enroll in the SUNY health insurance coverage, or show proof of comparable coverage according to a resolution adopted by the SUNY Board of Trustees on June 25th 1985. 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
Students MUST submit all three documents for review by International Student Services. Students who do not submit all three documents will not be considered for a waiver. Insurance coverage MUST match what is shown in the Clarification of Insurance Policy Benefits (EXAMPLE).
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 International Student Services 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. The deadline for the submission of waiver of Summer International Health Insurance and Fees is June 1.
You may also have your summer health insurance waived if you are graduating in May. Simply have your academic advisor or department chair send a note confirming that you will be graduating by email or post.
