Health Matters 

Health Insurance

Students on an F or J visa are required to have health insurance. International students at JMU will be added to the health insurance provided by Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI). Once you are added to the CISI policy you will receive an email with instructions on how to download your insurance card and policy information.

If you currently hold an insurance policy which will cover you for your entire stay at JMU at the same levels that the school's policy will cover, you may be exempt from the requirement of paying for the policy supported by JMU. If you wish to apply for a waiver, you must complete an Insurance Waiver Form and return it to ISSS along with copies of your current policy with English translations and verification of sufficient benefits. The deadline to submit this waiver form is the end of the second full week of classes each semester.

The health insurance for J-1 and visiting scholars website has more information on the specific requires related to immigration.  

Health Center

JMU has a full-service on-campus Health Center available to address your health needs. The Center offers immunizations, appointments with doctors and/or nurses, allergy medications, prescriptions, nutrition information, advice and other medical services.
