Domestic Student Health Insurance Requirement & Eligibility

Insurance Requirement

PSU requires that all domestic students enrolled in five credits* or more per term maintain comprehensive health insurance to ensure that students stay healthy and in the classroom. The Student Health Insurance Plan is major medical health insurance providing preventative, routine, and specialized health benefits. Those who have comparable outside health insurance can apply to waive the Student Health Insurance Plan.

*in-load non-Restricted Differential Tuition credits

Non-eligible/Restricted Differential Tuition Credits

Some credits, such as those earned during study abroad, the School of Public Health with OHSU, and some continuing education credits are considered Restricted Differential Tuition credits, meaning they do not count toward the 5 credit hours triggering the Student Health Insurance Plan requirement, or count towards eligibility to use SHAC.

Insurance Plan Eligibility

Students registered in five or more credits in a given term are eligible for the PSU Student Health Insurance Plan.

Students who drop below five credits by the end of the second week of the term, will no longer be eligible for the PSU Student Health Insurance Plan for that term. If a student needs to drop all courses for medical reasons but wishes to continue to have the PSU Student Health Insurance Plan, they may contact the insurance team.
