Step 2 – Health Insurance Information

Newly Admitted Students:

The charge for health insurance will be added to your student account along with your tuition and other fees each semester (the cost will vary depending on the term). Our health insurance policy will cost approximately $150-175 per month. Please note that health insurance costs are included in your I-20 “cost of living estimate.”

You will be expected to pay your insurance bill, like your tuition, each semester before registration begins for the following term.

This policy is being enforced in compliance with the national healthcare law, which requires all adults living in the United States to have health insurance. The University, by enrolling you in this policy, ensures that you have access to good healthcare options, which can be very expensive without good insurance in the United States.

If you have already purchased a health insurance policy in anticipation of your arrival, please cancel it. You are now required to purchase the University insurance instead.
