Graduate Student Health Insurance
Graduate students who hold at least a 0.25 FTE graduate assistantship
appointment are eligible for enrollment in a university-sponsored health
insurance program. For more information, visit the OSU Graduate
College internet site. Students who receive health insurance during the spring semester do
not need to maintain enrollment during the summer. Insurance coverage
will be extended until the beginning of fall semester in August.
The single-person health insurance premium is paid on the student's behalf. This benefit adds $890 to the value of your financial package. If your plans do not include enrolling in the program, then inform the Department as soon as possible. Students should also review the statement from the Council of Graduate Schools concerning conditions associated with the acceptance of graduate assistantships.
