2018-2019 Academic Year

 All international students attending Trinity University on a non-immigrant Visa status who are enrolled in 9 or more hours or participating in a full time graduate program are required by the University to have health insurance and to submit proof of insurance annually. The University has established three circumstances in which an international student can request a waiver to the student health insurance plan by providing alternative health insurance coverage.
