International Student insurance is due upon arrival on Morehead State University’s campus.  If you come to campus with insurance, it must meet the University’s minimum requirements and the insurance company must be domiciled in your home country.  Students will have until 8/31/12 to show proof of insurance.  After 8/31/12, the student will be required to purchase the insurance offered by the University. Holds will be put on each student’s account and will not be removed until they have paid their insurance or have shown proof of insurance.  Students will not be able to register for classes until this hold is removed. 

Students will need to come to 112 Allie Young Hall the first few days on campus to take care of their insurance needs.  The annual cost of insurance for the 2012 – 2013 year is $1,188.00.  No partial payments will be accepted.
