Health Insurance

International students at West Chester University are required to carry adequate health insurance in the United States to be effective for all periods of time the student has been authorized to be in the United States by an immigration document issued by the University. Health insurance policies must be purchased through a company that sells insurance in the United States. West Chester University complies with the coverage standards set forth by the Department of State which must be met by all insurance policies.

To assure compliance with the insurance requirement, all international students must come to the Center for International Programs (CIP) by August 31st of each academic year (January 31st for students entering spring semester). At the CIP, students may obtain information as to the amount of insurance required and the means of obtaining coverage to meet the insurance requirement.
