Required Health Insurance for International Students
Health care in the United States is expensive and the individual is responsible for paying the medical costs. The government does not pay for it. Having health insurance protects the individual by helping pay the medical expenses if he/she should become ill or be involved in an accident. For these reasons, all international students studying in North Dakota are required by the North Dakota University System (NDUS) to purchase the North Dakota state-mandated health insurance policy.
International Students will be automatically enrolled by the NDSU Office of International Student and Study Abroad Services on a semester basis as they continue to be enrolled at NDSU. Students will receive an email from UnitedHealthcare when their ID card is ready to be downloaded.
