Health Insurance

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.

California State University, Dominguez Hills requires all F-1 international students and J-1 exchange students to purchase and maintain adequate health insurance coverage prior to registering for classes. International students will not be able to register for classes until the Office of International Education (OIE) has received verification that you have purchased the mandatory California State University (CSU) International Student Health Insurance group policy offered through 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.

If you fail to maintain your health insurance while attending CSUDH you will be out-of-status and not eligible for a work permit or travel validation to return to the USA.

If you have any questions about health insurance coverage, please contact our International Student Services office at
