International Student Health Insurance

DePaul University offers a comprehensive and affordable health insurance plan for international students through ISO Student Health Insurance. Health insurance is a way to insure yourself against the very expensive costs associated with illness and injury minus any policy exclusions.

For more information about enrollment, coverage, waivers, and healthcare services, please visit International Student and Scholar Services health insurance webpage.

New International Students

All F-1 international students enrolled in courses at DePaul will automatically be enrolled in the ISO Student Health Insurance Plan.

  • Automatic enrollment applies to all F-1 students with an I-20 program start date of 8/24/2015 and beyond.
  • Charges will appear on your student account per quarter.  Law students will have charges on their account per semester.
  • If you already have a health insurance plan, you may qualify for a waiver.  Please visit this webpage​ for instructions on how to submit a Waiver Request to waive your automatic enrollment privileges into the ISO Health Insurance Plan.

DePaul requires that every student submit proof* that they have been immunized from specific diseases.
