Columbia College Chicago’s international student insurance plan is a no-waiver policy for insurance. All international students attending Columbia College Chicago on an F-1 or J-1 visa are required to maintain insurance year-round until you graduate. DACA, undocumented students, dual citizens and some other visa categories may qualify for the plan and should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to determine their eligibility. Permanent residents are not eligible for this plan. Throughout your time as a student, you'll be fully insured on our plan, even during the summer months. Your student account will be billed twice a year during the fall and spring semesters. Confirmation of your enrollment will be sent to your student e-mail account each semester. Students who have graduated and apply for post-completion OPT may ask to be enrolled in the plan while on OPT.
Insurance in the United States is quite complicated, and internationally-based insurance policies do not often cover the necessary medical expenses needed while in the United States. Columbia has collaborated with Lewermark to provide a robust insurance policy to cover any medical needs or charges that may accrue during your time at Columbia. Please see below for more details:
