Health Insurance While in the U.S.

Health insurance is required for all International Students.

The United States does not have a national healthcare system, and the cost of medical care can be catastrophic on a person's finances. To protect yourself and your family from financial hardship in the event you become ill or injured, you must maintain insurance through the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities System Student Health Plan.

  1. Purchase health insurance before registering for classes.
  2. Renew this insurance policy prior to registration.

Pro tip: We advise all international students to have medical and dental examinations before you leave home. Bring with you copies of your medical records and prescriptions for authorized prescriptions written in English.
