Student Accident and Health Insurance is an optional policy offered to U.S. students. SUNY Potsdam students are automatically billed the policy charge for Accident and Health Insurance in the fall and spring semester. Students are required to waive the Student Accident and Health Insurance at the beginning of each semester they attend.

Please note: failure to remove these fees through BearPAWS within 30 days from the first day of classes will cause you to be financially liable for these fees.
SUNY requires all international students to purchase health insurance. SUNY Potsdam international students are automatically billed the policy charge for health insurance on an annual basis in the fall or by the semester for those students beginning their study in the spring.
