Requirements & Costs

All EWU international students and scholars are required to have valid health insurance while in the United States. An international student insurance fee is automatically included in Eastern tuition and other mandatory fees when students register for classes each academic term. International scholars will see the insurance fee added to their account each academic term.

  • Students on OPT/CPT must request insurance coverage separately to be enrolled. Please email before the start of each academic term to recieve the link to apply. Note: OPT/CPT students will not be automatically enrolled in insurance each term. You must request enrollment.
  • Students applying for a waiver of the EWU Insurance must submit their request with appropriate documentation of comparable coverage prior to the first day of the academic term. See Deadlines for more information.
