Health insurance in the U.S. is very important. Medical costs can accumulate quickly with even a minor medical procedure or office visit. To help protect our students from these costs, ACU requires all international students and exchange visitors to purchase ACU health insurance, which meets the U.S. Department of State guidelines.

You are welcome to have another insurance policy if you would like. For example, you may purchase a policy that covers an area that ACU’s insurance does not. However, even with outside insurance, you must still purchase a separate policy through ACU.
Insurance charges are automatically noted on the student’s ACU account each semester. Students are charged the premiums for 5 months in the Fall semester (August - December), and 7 months in the Spring semester (January - July). Coverage is continued during the summer months for continuing students who were enrolled full-time in the previous spring semester. Your insurance charges are noted on your I-20 and DS-2019 cost information.
Again, please note that all international students and exchange visitors are required to have ACU insurance coverage. This coverage cannot be waived.
