Medical Coverage


Immunizations, Medical Records and Health Insurance

All Queens College students are required to submit immunization records.

Please print the immunization record forms and have a physician in your home country complete the information in English. These forms must be submitted to Queens College GSSP before you come to the U.S.

Health Insurance

With the exception of General Admission Students, all international students are required to purchase health insurance. Health Insurance provides financial protection in the event of serious illness or accident while studying in the U.S. Medical care in the U.S. is expensive, and you must have health insurance to help with these costs. The Queens College GSSP strongly recommends that all international students purchase health insurance.

Queens College GSSP’s mandatory health insurance policy can be found here. Students will receive their medical insurance card the first week of classes.

Coverage dates for Spring 2020 students will be the following: January 10, 2020 to January 9, 2021.
