All international students (domestic students traveling abroad under an exchange program, or foreign students attending college in the U.S. on a student visa) must purchase International Student Medical Insurance regardless of whether they are full- or part-time. International students, who have been issued an I-20 from SUNY Poly, must be covered the entire time they remain in the U.S., whether attending classes or remaining in the country during summer break. Exemption from participation in the plan may be granted only in very few and specific circumstances.
Since the international insurance plan is obtained through prior arrangement with insurance agencies independent of the State University of New York, cost per year is variable based on experience rating for the program. Students will be charged the appropriate rate at the time they begin attendance. Current rates are as follows, but are subject to change annually:
International Student Insurance: $1,966.28 per year*
(both full- and part-time students)
*Subject to change
