PLEASE NOTE: PSU requires that all students taking 5 or more in-load, non self-support credits have comprehensive health insurance coverage. All eligible students will automatically be enrolled in the Aetna Student Health Insurance Plan available through PSU, which is $560 for each Fall, Winter, and Spring terms (Spring term covers insurance coverage throughout the summer). This cost is NOT factored into the tuition and fee estimator. If you already have a comparable health insurance plan in place, you may waive out of the student plan, and will not be charged the $560 per term.
