Financial documentation requirement

Please keep in mind that U.S. immigration law requires international students to provide documentation that shows they will be able to pay for all tuition and living expenses during their studies at UW–Madison. To meet this requirement, we will provide you with a financial affidavit form to complete and submit.

Health Care

Additionally, to ensure you’ll have health care if you need it, UW–Madison requires that all international students on nonimmigrant visas enroll in the university’s Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP), included in the chart below. Visit the Student Health Insurance Plan site for more information, including enrollment forms, rates, and waiver guidelines.
