Student Health Insurance Options

Marian University does not provide a campus-wide “student health insurance” plan nor do we endorse any medical plans for the general student body.

Marian University requires all students who enter the United States with an F or J student visa to carry health insurance that meets the U.S. Department of State recommendations. ALL international students must have LewerMark Student Insurance or have an approved waiver confirming alternative coverage that meets certain requirements. More information can be found at www.marian.edu/InternationalInsurance. For questions, contact the Office of International Programs at international@marian.edu.
