Arizona State University requires that international students have adequate medical and accident insurance coverage. The following health insurance policies affect sponsored students:

  • Sponsored students with ASU-approved insurance provided by their sponsor who have a valid financial guarantee on file with Student Business Services will be automatically exempt from enrollment in the ASU-provided health insurance plan for the current semester. All other sponsored students will be automatically charged for ASU insurance.

  • To be eligible for the automatic exemption, students must ensure that Student Business Services has a copy of a valid financial guarantee on file. Students must send their new or updated financial guarantee to Student Business Services and the ISSC. 

  • ASU Health Services reserves the right to verify benefits and coverage periods with each sponsor.
