Aetna Student Health

Penn State students are eligible to purchase a student health insurance plan for the upcoming academic year. All undergraduate students taking three or more credits or graduate students taking one or more credits are eligible to purchase the plan. The plan is offered online through Aetna Student Health Insurance.

Overview

The Student Health Insurance office is responsible for administering the health insurance plan for Penn State students:

Other Health Insurance Plans

If you are covered by a health insurer other than one of the Penn State student plans, it is your responsibility to submit your claims to your insurance company for reimbursement.

Health insurance is strongly recommended for all students. If your current insurance policy does not cover care at UHS, you should consider purchasing student health insurance through Penn State.

International Students

Penn State requires international students, their accompanying spouses and/or children to demonstrate that they have health insurance coverage. If you are an international student who has not yet reviewed or completed the University's waiver process for the mandatory health insurance requirement, please see Penn State's Mandatory Health Insurance Requirement .

World Campus Students

Please note that student health insurance is not available to World Campus students.
