Health and Safety

California State University (CSU) requires all international students to meet the following health and safety requirements for the duration of their program.

Health Insurance

  • Health Insurance Requirement

    California State University (CSU) requires all international students to have adequate medical, medical evacuation, and repatriation insurance coverage, beginning with the start of your program (as listed on your I-20/DS-2019), and at all times thereafter while you hold an F-1 or J-1 visa and you are residing within the U.S.

    For J-1 visa holders, failure to meet this requirement is also a violation of your immigration status and may result in the cancellation of your DS-2019 and disenrollment from the University.

  • Health Insurance Plan Options - By Student Type
    Deadline to purchase: August 1 (fall semester) and January 1 (spring semester)

    Students who purchase the full year plan each fall submit proof in August only.
