Health Insurance and Required Immunizations

The CSU requires all international students to obtain and maintain adequate insurance coverage (health, medical evacuation, and repatriation) during their period of enrollment. Health insurance protects you from having to pay, by yourself, large medical bills that can arise even from simple medical procedures.

International students will not be able to register for classes until the International Student Services (ISS) office has received verification that you have purchased LewerMark Student Insurance. There are no exceptions to this policy. Waivers might be considered only for certain government-sponsored arrangements, and for students with a parent or spouse who has a U.S. employer-based policy that covers the student.
