Health Insurance

Insurance is required for all international students.

Find your program below to read up on the requirements.

American Language Center (ALC) Programs

Injury and Sickness Insurance is included in the American Language Center’s student services fees for the Academic Intensive English Program (AIEP), Intensive English Communication Program (IECP) and the American Culture & Communication Course (ACC). This insurance allows you to visit a hospital or clinic if you need medical attention due to an injury or sickness while studying at UCLA Extension. On the first day of your program, you will receive an insurance identification card and be provided more detailed information on your insurance coverage.

For more information, visit Aetna Student Health and select University of California, Los Angeles - Extension for the year that you will be enrolled in the program. Brochures are available in a variety of languages.

Note: Permanent residents of the United States will not be eligible for this insurance.

Certificate Programs

New for Fall 2018: Health insurance can be purchased via Relation Insurance Services. 

Certificate program students are required to have health insurance for the duration of your studies at UCLA Extension and to pay a separate fee each quarter for health insurance. The health insurance price is currently $570 per quarter (fees for spouse/child can vary).

To purchase health insurance and view policy details, visit the Relation Insurance Services website or call (877) 246-6997 to speak to a representative.

New Certificate Students

New students are required to purchase health insurance and submit proof of payment along with other application documents for the International Student Office to review and complete the application process.

Current Certificate Students

Students currently enrolled in a certificate program are recommended to purchase health insurance at least 2 weeks in advance of your current quarter coverage expiry date as it can take 10-14 days for the new insurance coverage to appear as active in your insurance account.

Study Abroad

The UCLA health insurance fee is included in the program fee and is required for each student enrolled in Study Abroad and any dependents, if applicable. Under the insurance plan, you can use UCLA medical facilities and services. Coverage begins on the first day of the quarter and ends one day after the last day of the quarter.

For more information, visit Aetna Student Health, and select University of California, Los Angeles - Extension for the year that you will be enrolled in the program. Brochures are available in a variety of languages.
