Princeton University International Student Insurance

General Information

Princeton University, located in Princeton, New Jersey, was established in 1746. It’s the fourth-oldest institution of higher education in the United States and one of eight schools in the Ivy League. The university was the site of the Battle of Princeton (1777) during the American Revolution; British soldiers briefly occupied a hall on campus, but American forces led by George Washington forced them out under cannon fire. Washington returned to that same hall in 1783 to receive formal thanks and commendation from the Continental Congress for his contributions to the war effort.

Princeton’s colors are orange and black, and its athletic mascot is the tigers.

On Campus

Noteworthy features on campus include Nassau Hall, the building involved in the Battle of Princeton and the seat of the Congress of the Confederation from June to November of 1783; McCarter Theatre, winner of the 1994 Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre and continually recognized as one of the leading regional theaters in the country; and the Princeton University Art Museum, which houses more than 90,000 pieces and paintings by artists like Monet, Cezanne, and Van Gogh.

Princeton is somewhat notable in that it did not admit women until 1969.

Notable Alumni

Famous Princeton alumni include U.S. Presidents James Madison and Woodrow Wilson; Vice President and revolutionary figure Aaron Burr; author F. Scott Fitzgerald; academic figures Richard Feynman, John Nash, and Alan Turing; Supreme Court Justices Samuel Alito, Elena Kagan, and Sonia Sotomayor; actors Jimmy Stewart and David Duchovny; and former First Lady Michelle Obama.

Princeton University International Student Insurance Requirements

Princeton University states that all J-1 Scholars and their dependents are required to have health insurance throughout their program. J-1 employees and J visa holders are required to enroll in the school’s plans or find alternative coverage that meets the federal health insurance mandates for J-visa holders. Both of the health insurance plans provided by the school are compliant with PPACA and J-1 visa federal mandates for health insurance. The school will automatically enroll into the J-visa plan if the J-1 visa holder does not choose to elect or waive the medical health insurance coverage.  Alternative plans that meet the federal medical insurance mandates for J visa can be found below.

Princeton University states that all students are automatically enrolled in the school’s health insurance plan. They are able to waive the school’s plan for one that provides comparable coverage, such things like routine care, off-campus specialty care, and hospitalization not provided at UHS. The plan must also be PPACA compliant.

Princeton University does not provide information pertaining to health insurance requirements for the international student dependents carrying an F-2 or J-2 visa. Dependents can find the available plans under each given section above under “Students” or “Exchange Visitor J1/J2”. Plans in the “Exchange Visitor J1/J2” section do meet all the federal limits of coverage as required by the U.S Department of State. It is recommend to contact your Office of International Student & Scholar office for further questions as dependents may have to meet additional requirements only provided to the registered attendee.

Please contact our office for further information. This information is subject to change.
