Health Insurance Requirement

As of June 4, 2015, 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 fall premium ($821) on the student accounts by August 21, 2015.  This charge will be viewable to students. More information can be found in the university's policy register.

 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 which is from August 15, 2015 - September 30, 2015. For more information visit University Health Services website.
