Health Insurance

Metropolitan State University students taking at least 6 credits of undergraduate or at least 3 credits of graduate classes are eligible for health insurance coverage. Coverage is also available for dependents. For coverage, they must pay the required premium within 10 days after the semester starts. More information is available online.

All international students and visiting scholars engaged in educational activities are required to purchase the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities international student accident and illness insurance plan, unless they can provide written verification that their government or sponsoring agency accepts full responsibility for any medical claims that might occur.


All students born in 1958 or later are required to be in compliance with Minnesota College Immunization Law (Minnesota Statue 135 A.14(.pdf). This law requires that these students be immunized for measles, mumps, and rubella (MMB) , after the student was at least one year old. Tetanus and diphtheria (TD) vaccines must have been received within the past 10 years. It further requires that students provide documentation of the month and year each immunization was given.

The Metropolitan State University Student Immunization Record(.pdf) form must be submitted to the Admissions Office within 45 days of the semester that the student is admitted, or you will not be able to register for subsequent courses. Students who fail to submit the required information within 45 days of their first semester at Metropolitan State will have a registration hold placed on their account.
Students are exempt if they were born before 1957 or graduated from a Minnesota high school after 1996.
