Due to the extremely high cost of health care in the United States, Providence College requires that all undergraduate students on nonimmigrant visas be covered by the campus medical insurance plan under University Health Plans. International students are automatically billed each semester at the time of registration for the PC student medical insurance.
International undergraduate students may not waive this insurance requirement.
Graduate international students should visit the graduate students page for information about insurance coverage options.
