International Students

The University of Alaska Statewide system has endorsed an accident and sickness insurance plan for international students attending UAS. All registered international students on F-1 or J-1 visas taking credit hours must have health insurance or they will be automatically enrolled in this insurance plan. The premium will be added to their university billing. If international students have their own health insurance they must submit proof of that insurance to Marsha Squires, Academic Exchange Coordinator. Her office is located in the lower level of the Mourant Building or she can be reached by email at
