Health insurance is mandatory for all full-time students, and is provided by University Health Student Resources through United Healthcare.

All International students are required to enroll in RISD’s health plan. 

Students wishing to waive this option may do so if they have a United States based insurance company, and are not an international student.

To waive, please click on the link below and follow the steps on the website.

Other information on the insurance plan can also be found using this link.

Students who are enrolled in the health plan will receive an e-mail to their RISD account with a link and sign-in information.  Create your account, and then print out the insurance cards.  All students should keep a copy of their insurance card on them at all times.
