Catholic University of America International Student Insurance

General Information

The Catholic University of America, located in Washington, D.C., was established in 1887 with a papal charter by Pope Leo XIII. It was founded as the national university of the Catholic Church in the United States, intended as a graduate research center that would merge religious doctrine with intellectual rigor. The school opened to undergraduates in 1904. Its academic colors are gold and white, athletic colors red and black, and the athletic mascot is the cardinal.

On Campus

The campus lies just a 10-minute train ride from Washington, D.C., institutions like Capitol Hill, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Library of Congress, giving students the opportunity to participate in everything the nation’s capital has to offer. CUA is one of two American universities to have hosted a Pope and the only one that can boast three separate papal visits: Pope John Paul II in 1979, Pope Benedict XVI in 2008, and Pope Francis in 2015.

The school is known for its longstanding partnership with the Knights of Columbus, a source of funding and support since the university’s inception. Its most prestigious academic institutions are the Columbus School of Law and the Theological College.

Notable Alumni

Notable CUA alumni and attendees include dozens of cardinals and bishops in the Catholic Church; actors Ed McMahon, Susan Sarandon, and Jon Voight; news anchor Brian Williams; and the first African-American U.S. recipient of a doctorate in geology, Marguerite Williams.

Catholic University of America International Student Insurance Requirements

International Students

Catholic University of America cites that both domestic and international students who are registered students of the University are mandated to have medical insurance. Students are automatically enrolled in the Catholic University of America medical insurance plan unless they submit an online waiver that meets or exceeds the minimal levels of coverage such as:

  • Medical benefits of at least $500,000 per accident or illness per policy year
  • Repatriation of remains in the amount of at least $25,000
  • Medical evacuation coverage of at least $50,000
  • Part of a health benefits program offered on a group basis to employees or enrolled students by a designated sponsor

Catholic University of America does not cite any medical insurance mandates or medical coverage information for F-2 dependents. Therefore F-2 visa holders can select any plan in the Student (F-1/F-2) section of the website, as these do meet the federal limits as required by the school.

J-1 international exchange students are not eligible for the school’s medical insurance plan, and therefore do not need to apply for the waiver. They are required to purchase and show proof of health insurance coverage. All plans under the Exchange Visitor (J-1/J-2) section or listed below will meet the requirements mandated by the U.S. Department of State.

It is recommended to contact the office of International Student and Scholar Service to verify the health insurance requirements prior to purchase, as detailed information may only be provided to the attendee.

Exchange Visitors

Catholic University of America does not mandate any additional medical insurance requirements for J visa holders other than what is cited by federal law. U.S. Department of State regulations mandate that all J  visa holders, including all accompanying dependents, are to obtain medical insurance that meets the federal standards for the full duration of their time in the U.S. All plans under the Exchange Visitor (J-1/J-2) section will meet the requirements mandated by the U.S. Department of State.

It is recommended to contact the office of International Student and Scholar Service to verify the health insurance requirements prior to purchase, as detailed information may only be provided to the attendee.
