In accordance with the TBR Policy on Admission (2:03:00:00), ETSU requires that all international, non-immigrant students and scholars under the F and J status maintain accident, illness, medical evacuation, and repatriation insurance on themselves as a condition to their admission, enrollment, research duties, and employment at the ETSU. Applicants under any of the J status categories must also carry accident, illness, medical evacuation, and repatriation insurance for spouses and dependents. Please note that you will be required to purchase health insurance directly through the insurance provider mandated by TBR. No private health insurance policy [with limited exemption] will be accepted.
The cost for insurance coverage per semester is approximately $700.
The health insurance coverage that you purchase at ETSU will not provide you with dental or eye coverage. We strongly recommend that you have a dental and eye examination before departing for the United States.
The current insurance provider for ETSU international student health insurance is United Health Care.
