Insurance and Immunization

Health Insurance Requirement

All international students taking at least one credit hour are required to have health insurance that is comparable to the coverage provided with the Kent State University sponsored student health insurance plan. The bursar's office will automatically post the current seemester premium on the student accounts.  This charge will be viewable to students. More information can be found in the university's policy register.

In order to activate the insurance plan, students must enroll here.

 Any international student may request a waiver of this fee if:
  • The student provides proof of full sponsorship by a government agency including health insurance, or
  • The student provides proof of health insurance provided by a United States employer.
  • Waiver requests must be submitted during the open enrollment period. For more information visit University Health Services website.
