Health Insurance for International Students 

International exchange students are required by federal law to hold adequate health insurance for the duration of their studies. SOU automatically enrolls all international students in an affordable health insurance policy.  These charges are automatically applied to your student account each term. Students can apply for an insurance waiver only if their home country government provides medical coverage that meets or exceeds the amounts required by law.

Any dependents who will be coming to the US with an SOU international student are also required to hold the SOU insurance policy. If you will be bringing any dependents with you,  please contact the International Student Advisor.

For eligibility and enrollment questions or to print a temporary ID card, please visit www.gallagherkoster.com/sou or call Gallagher Koster's Customer Service at (800) 466-7103.
