All international students who are registered for at least 1 credit hour in Fall, Winter and/or Spring terms will be automatically charged for OSU International Health Insurance.
If a student has other insurance, he/she may submit a waiver and a summary of the insurance for approval no later than the last published date of open enrollment. If approved, the charge will be removed. To learn more about health insurance and how to use it, visit About Health Insurance.
OSU requires that all non-resident international students and their dependents (living in the United States) be covered by health insurance. The health insurance must meet federal, state and OSU requirements (OAR 576-025-0020). For more information on adding a dependent to your OSU health insurance, contact the Student Health Insurance office 541-737-7600.
