International Student Center
All F-1 visa students are required to purchase health/accident insurance coverage from the College. A registration hold will be placed on your record of you fail to purchase it.
When to pay for health insurance
New students: Pay for health insurance after your academic orientation and before registration.
Continuing students: Pay for health insurance at least three business days* before your registration date and time.
*Business days are Monday-Friday. Health insurance holds are only removed during ISC office hours and not during the evening or weekends. If you pay health insurance fees on the weekend or the day before your registration date and time, we cannot guarantee that the health insurance hold will be released from your account by the time you need to register. Please plan ahead to avoid any delay!
