Domestic Students are not required to have insurance to receive care at the Student Health Service. However, students are strongly encouraged to have health insurance coverage in the event of a health care crisis.
- Students are eligible to stay on their family health insurance program. Consult your insurance provider to determine if this option is available to you.
International students at NDSU have a separate mandatory policy in which they will be enrolled upon registration and therefore should not purchase this insurance. Please contact the Office of International Programs in the Memorial Union for more information. Please see International Programs website for insurance information.
United Healthcare Student Resources - Student Health Insurance
The North Dakota University System (NDUS) is pleased to offer health insurance coverage to NDUS students through United Healthcare Insurance Company. Domestic students (i.e. American citizens) are not required by the NDUS to carry this coverage, and we know many of you may be covered by your parents’ insurance until age 26. However, the Affordable Care Act does require that you carry some sort of health insurance, and this plan is an option.
Eligibility & Enrollment:
All NDUS full-time students who attend at least one course face-to-face on campus are eligible to enroll in this student health insurance plan (please see the Frequently Asked Questions page on the NDUS website for more information).
International students (with the exception of Canadian and Norwegian students) are required to have this health insurance plan per State Board of Higher Education Policy.
