All international and INTO OSU students who are registered for a minimum of one (1) on-campus credit are required to enroll in the OSU Student Health Insurance plan.

If you are an eligible international or INTO OSU student, you will be automatically enrolled and charged for this plan.



If you have any dependents in your household who are eligible for coverage under the plan, they have the option to enroll.  To add a dependent, they must fill out an enrollment form at the Student Health Plan office in the Plageman Building, Room 117.


    You may waive the requirement to be covered under the OSU Student Insurance Plan if you have comparable insurance under a different company.

    In order to waive the requirement, you must complete the waiver process established by the school. 

    If you do not complete the waiver process, or your insurance does not meet the waiver requirements, you will be automatically enrolled into the OSU Student Insurance Plan and a premium will be charged to your student account.

    Refer to the dates below to ensure you complete the waiver process in time.
