International Student Insurance
Comprehensive coverage for medical expenses, generally incurred off-campus, including medical evacuation and repatriation benefits, arising from covered accidents and sicknesses. There is a $100 deductible – can be waived in some circumstances. The insurance is mandatory for international students and scholars, F-1 and J-1 visas, and for students studying abroad. For further information and to learn about eligibility for insurance waivers, please visit the International Student Services website.

$75.00 per-semester, mandatory fee for all International students who are F and J visa holders. This fee supports compliance with federal mandates for reporting and tracking International students and scholars and is non-refundable for course withdrawals bearing an official drop/withdrawal date of the first day of the semester or later. (NOTE: The University's SEVIS Fee should not be confused with the $200 SEVIS Fee paid by visa applicants.)
