International students who are starting as new students for Fall 2021 and Winter 2022, and residing outside of Canada, may be eligible to opt out of the University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP).    

If you plan on travelling to Canada at some point over the fall or winter semester, opt out of UHIP now and coverage will be reinstated based on travel date.  Notify the ISSO in advance of any travel plans to Canada by emailing

For information on the supplemental drug/dental/vision plan, visit here if you are an undergraduate student and here if you are a graduate student.

Students with questions about their UHIP coverage should contact the International Student Services Office (ISSO) at
