All F-1 International students at Pace University must purchase health insurance at the time of registration. If you would like to use your own health insurance policy, you must submit a copy of your policy in English and US Dollars. 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. You may come to the English Language Institute office and ask for the Insurance Waiver form. Please note that your insurance policy must carry medical evacuation and repatriation clause.
