If you would like to use your own health insurance policy, you must submit a copy of your policy in English and US Dollars before classes begin. The insurance company will evaluate your health insurance. If it is equivalent to the policy carried by Pace, you will receive a refund of the insurance fee. However, if it is not equivalent to Pace’s then you will not receive a refund. Please note that your insurance policy must carry medical evacuation and repatriation clause.  More information for the health insurance waiver will be provided in the Acceptance Package.
