•  The Student Health Insurance Plan Office will be accepting spring term Location Exemption Requests from 03/15/21 - 04/02/21. If you are an international student taking classes remotely for spring term and will be outside of the US in your home country for the full duration of the term, from March 20th, 2021 - June 11th, 2021, you may qualify for an exemption. Please check your OSU email regularly as you will be emailed by our office when you have been charged for the mandatory health insurance. The email will provide you with important information including instructions for requesting a Location Exemption. If you have questions please contact the Student Health Insurance Plan Office.
  • Graduate Assistant and Fellow insurance plans are now covered by the Office of Human Resources. Information is available here for each plan.
We recommend adequate health insurance coverage.

All Oregon State students are strongly encouraged to have some form of health insurance.

SHS offers student health insurance for students that may not have had access previously.

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 at 541-737-7600.

Graduate Assistants, Graduate Fellows, and Postdoctoral Scholar/Clinical Fellows have a separate mandatory health insurance plan through their appointment or fellowship.
