Health Insurance for International Students
Health insurance is mandatory for all international students at SUNY Plattsburgh.
All international students are automatically enrolled in the SUNY Plattsburgh UnitedHealthcare Insurance Program. Due to SUNY regulations we can no longer waive this requirement, regardless of whether you have comparable health insurance from your home country.
All enrolled international students must purchase the health insurance plan offered by SUNY Plattsburgh.
