Health insurance is a program that helps cover many medical expenses that can occur while you are in the United States. International students and their dependents are required by law to purchase SIUE-approved health insurance during the entire length of enrollment at SIUE. Health insurance for the semester should be purchased in the United States after your arrival. Information about health insurance enrollment can be obtained from SIUE Health Service.
Immunizations are required for all international students enrolled at SIUE. All immunization records not in English must be accompanied by a certified translation. The SIUE Office of International Affairs strongly recommends that you complete your immunization requirement before you arrive at SIUE. Immunization cost in the United States can range anywhere from $75-$200. Detailed Information about the required immunizations can be found on the Immunization Requirement section of SIUE Health Service website.
