Mandatory Health Insurance

Health insurance coverage is mandatory for all international students enrolled at Kansas State University, regardless of their course load.

Every international student on a J or F visa is automatically enrolled in our health insurance plan. No action is required from the student to enroll in the health insurance plan offered by the University.

Upon registering for courses each semester, all international students on F and J visas will be automatically enrolled for health insurance coverage with United Healthcare Student Resources (UHCSR). The enrollment fee for this health insurance will be automatically assessed to each international student’s tuition bill.
