Health Insurance

As a condition of your enrollment at California State University, Fresno you will be automatically enrolled in the CSU-approved health insurance policy.  You will be automatically charged the health insurance premium in two installments during the academic year.  A charge of $560 will appear on your cashier's bill for the required health insurance policy for the Fall 2015 semester, covering the period of August 9, 2015 - January 8, 2016. Similarly, a charge of $770 will appear on your bill for the Spring 2016 semester, covering the period of January 9, 2016 - August 8, 2016.

Those students who have coverage provided by a sponsoring organization, such as the Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission, will not be required to enroll in the CSU-approved health insurance plan.  Please purchase travel insurance ONLY for the period that you will be in the United States that is not covered by the effective dates of the policy listed above.
