Who is eligible to enroll in the International Student Health Insurance Plan?

International students are subject to the mandatory insurance requirement and are enrolled in the plan upon registration with the University.

Can a student opt out of the International Student Health Insurance Plan coverage and related charges?

University policy requires mandatory demonstrated comparable health insurance for all International Students. International Students (both graduate, undergraduate, and continuous registration) who are enrolled at CSU, regardless of credit level, will be automatically enrolled in the plan each semester.

International students wishing to waive the plan must demonstrate proof of comparable coverage by completing the waiver process.  Students who have been granted a waiver in the fall semester will be automatically waived in the spring semester.

Does CSU provide insurance coverage options for students’ dependents, spouses, or domestic partners?

CSU has found that health insurance coverage for students’ dependents, spouses or domestic partners is most affordable through the open market. The Colorado Health Insurance Exchange is a marketplace where Coloradans can shop for and buy health insurance based on quality and price. The Exchange also provides financial assistance to people with certain income levels to reduce up-front costs.

Additional options available for International Students’ dependents, spouses, or domestic partners include:
