Welcome to Oregon State University! We have a strong institutional commitment to academics, student growth, and the development of individual responsibility. To further these goals, the university embraces the concept that catastrophic financial risks while attending the university should be minimized. OSU recommends all students maintain adequate health insurance coverage.
At this time international students are required to enroll in the OSU insurance plan. 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.
Graduate assistants, graduate fellows, and postdoctoral scholar and fellows have a separate mandatory health insurance plan through their appointment/fellowship.

ASOSU Insurance Subsidy: All students who enroll in the OSU International or Domestic plans qualify to apply for the need-based insurance subsidy offered by ASOSU (Associated Students of OSU - student government). The insurance office does not run this subsidy but we feel it is important for students to know that it is available. The deadline to apply for this subsidy is the third Friday of the term, and the insurance charge must be paid in full by the deadline for students to be eligible.
