Health Insurance

Student health insurance is available at minimal group rates. Enrollments must take place during the first three weeks of each semester. It is strongly suggested that all students maintain adequate health insurance while enrolled in college. Please note that Penn State DOES require international students to have medical insurance.

Applications for health insurance are available in the Office of Student Affairs, 2nd floor, Commons/Athletic Center.
