What is the SHIP (Student Health Insurance Premium) charge on my student account?

International students and students in the College of Medicine are required to have adequate health insurance coverage while enrolled at Penn State. These students must provide proof of health insurance coverage that meets certain criteria or purchase the Penn State Student Health Insurance Plan (“SHIP”).

Please note, Penn State has adjusted the billing process for international students for 2019. Beginning in fall 2019, international students will see their insurance premium added to their student bursar account.

If you have any questions about Penn State SHIP, please contact the Student Health Insurance Office at uhs-insurance@psu.edu or by phone at 814-865-7467, option 1.
