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. 

  • International students are required by the state of North Dakota to purchase health insurance.
  • Many students are eligible to stay on their family health insurance program. Consult your insurance provider to determine if this option is available to you.

Please note: 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.
