Domestic Students
Although not required for domestic students, OSU encourages students to seek health insurance so that they can live their healthiest lives.

International Students
International students must purchase OSU's health insurance or show record of similar coverage and request a waiver. International students are automatically enrolled in OSU's health insurance and the charge is billed to the student account. Find out more about international student health insurance through OSU.
