( Please Note: A copy of your Financial Guarantee letter/ Sponsorship letter and copy of your health insurance information must be submitted to Rhonda Baxter (at the USA Student Health Center) before classes begin each semester.) All necessary documents can be submitted via email to: rbaxter@southalabama.edu.
