Health Insurance

NMSU requires all F-1 and J-1 students and their dependents to obtain and continually maintain major medical health insurance. Insurance coverage can be purchased annually or can be divided by the Fall, or the Spring/Summer semesters. Health insurance coverage is required for the summer. Failure to purchase and keep this insurance may result in not being able to register and falling out of visa status.

Please read this important memo from March 2016 regarding NMSU health insurance for international students.

Students can purchase the NMSU health insurance at the Student Health Center.
