Health Insurance Requirement

College of the Canyons Board of Directors policy #509 requires international students who hold I-20s issued by College of the Canyons to obtain health insurance.
International students are required to present proof of health insurance before they begin their classes. Coverage for the duration of the school semester through the beginning of the following semester is required.
Evidence of health insurance coverage must include a start and end date. Deviations from this requirement may only be approved by the Director and Assistant Director of ISP.
International students may obtain valid insurance from their home country instead of purchasing group insurance. They may also obtain coverage from U.S. providers. Students may either seek out a provider themselves, or purchase the pre-approved policy offered by the Lane Lewis Agency.
