All International Students on F-1 Visas who attend CSUN must be covered by Student Insurance at all times. Tseng College international students have the same requirements.

Please note: the insurance requirements are only for F-1 students who are IN the United States. If you are living outside of the U.S. and are taking courses online, due to COVID, you are not required to have student insurance. Whenever you are on a Tseng College I-20 and living in the U.S., you must have insurance.

Required Minimum Student Insurance
$100,000 Medical/Hospital and
$30,000 Emergency evacuation and repatriation

As a Tseng College international student on an F-1 visa, you have the option of buying insurance from the company of your choice but you must provide proof of having the required coverage, including while on OPT. It is your responsibility to submit proof of insurance to Tseng College, as well as each renewal. It can be submitted in person or via email.

Students in Tseng College graduate programs such as M.S. Taxation, ABA, and MPA, send proof of insurance to Danielle Keesee, danielle.g.keesee@csun.edu, or any DSO in the Tseng College.

Students in the SAC (Semester at CSUN) program, submit proof of insurance to Jessica Isomoto, jessica.isomoto@csun.edu.

Here are companies that sell student insurance. This list is given as a convenience to our students, not as any type of endorsement or recommendation.

If you have medical/health insurance through a spouse or when employed under OPT, you will probably need to buy evacuation and repatriation insurance only (“supplemental insurance”). You can purchase it from an insurance company you choose. It must provide at least $30,000 to cover repatriation and evacuation.
