Health Care and Student Insurance

When you register for classes, those students with 6.0 credit hours or more will have the option to accept or decline student health insurance. This charge will be included in your Bursar bill. There is a two week window when the semester begins to add or drop insurance coverage.

Students living in Hamilton Hall, The Woods, Honors Community, or the university apartments are required to purchase this coverage or confirm existence of an equivalent coverage.

All international students and dependents are required to purchase WSU health insurance. UCIE can make an exception for students who receive insurance covering them as a dependent through a US employer with the purchase of a supplemental plan covering repatriation and medical evacuation.

Student Health Services

In addition to functioning as caregivers and administrators of treatment, the Student Health Services’ staff strive to be educators and promote wellness. This positive approach to living emphasizes the total person; social, occupational, spiritual, physical, intellectual, and emotional.
