J-1: Health Insurance
It is a mandatory US government requirement that all J-1 students have health insurance coverage during their program of study. JMU offers a health insruance policy for international students through CISI and the cost of this insurance policy can be added to your tuition and fees bill. Alternativley, you can purchase your own health insurance policy, but it must meet the mimimum criteria as listed under the "insurance" tab on the Exchange Visitor Program website.
If you have questions about health insurance, please contact the ISSS office.
