Health Insurance Coverage

It is highly recommended by the South Dakota Board of Regents that students purchase some form of health insurance coverage. Under South Dakota law, students who do not have health insurance will not be covered under the county's indigent coverage, should the need for medical assistance arise. Choosing not to purchase health insurance may negatively impact students and their financial future.

The South Dakota Board of Regents Policy 3:14 – Student Health Insurance outlines health insurance-related requirements for the following populations:
  • Foreign National Students
  • Student Athletes
  • J1 and J-2 Scholars/Students
  • Students, Faculty and Staff Participating in University Affiliated International Activities
