Health Insurance Requirement

The California State University requires all international students to have health insurance that covers emergency evacuation and repatriation. The International Student and Scholar Services worked with the brokerage firm John C. Breckenridge Insurance Solutions to research health insurance providers and to give CPP international students the most comprehensive coverage at the lowest price.

AETNA Student Insurance is the policy selected for 2020-2021. Dependents of the students are not eligible to enroll. We encourage students to purchase additional health insurance coverage for their dependents.
