Health Insurance

If you’re an international student on a Century College I-20, you are required to purchase the system-approved student health insurance. (You are exempted if your sponsoring agency or government certifies in writing that you are covered under a plan provided by the sponsoring agency or government).

Forms are available in the Business Office and Multicultural Student Center.

You must submit a completed form with payment to the Century College Business Office (having alternative insurance from a parent, spouse, or sponsor does NOT waive your requirement to purchase the system policy).
