Health Insurance

J-1 Scholars

St. Thomas University adheres to federal law that mandates that J-1 exchange visitors and J-2 dependents maintain health insurance throughout the “J” program. If you knowingly and willfully fail to maintain health insurance, St. Thomas University is required and must terminate your program and report to the U.S. Department of State. At that time, you will be deemed “out-of-status” and ineligible for an extension of stay, employment, or change of status.
