If you plan to waive Juniata’s insurance, you must complete the insurance verification through IE Student Health. The link can be found here: IE Student Health Waiver Instructions. Once completed, please email the verification to international@juniata.edu. If you have waived Juniata’s insurance and do not have the verification from IE Student Health, the insurance fee will be reapplied to your student bill.  

If your insurance plan does not meet the requirements, you have the option to purchase another plan and have it verified through IE Student Health or enroll in Juniata’s insurance. There will not be any exceptions.

If you plan enroll in Juniata’s insurance plan, you do not need to do anything with IE Student Health.

After your home institution provides official notification to Juniata that you have been recommended for exchange, you will need to apply for a student visa to enter the United States.
