Disability & Health Services
The Art Institute of California—San Francisco does not offer health care services to students. However, we do make an insurance plan covering accident and illness available to our students and their dependents. All students are urged to carry a primary private insurance policy that covers comprehensive health care. Information regarding the benefits and costs of The Art Institutes’ Student Accident and Sickness Plan is available from the Student Affairs Department at the school.
It is a requirement that all international students who attend The Art Institute of California—San Francisco have adequate accident and illness insurance. If your existing health insurance policy will not protect you while you live in the United States, you may wish to consider the policy offered to our students by USI Insurance. All international students must either purchase one of the insurance plans offered by USI OR complete a waiver form indicating that you have your own insurance which adequately covers you in the United States. The insurance coverage you elect is a decision to be made by you.
USI is wholly separate from The Art Institutes and The Art Institutes have no financial interest in their operations, nor do The Art Institutes make any representation as to the quality or adequacy of medical care or insurance coverage provided to any student during his or her enrollment at The Art Institute of California—San Francisco.
