All international students enrolled at the University taking 5 or more credits are automatically assessed the Student Health fee in tuition costs. This fee includes access to all the services provided by the Center for Student Health and Counseling (SHAC).
All international students taking 1 or more credits are automatically enrolled in the PSU Student Health Insurance Plan and their student account is charged the insurance fee (separate from the Student Health Fee). Some international students are eligible to waive out of the insurance. The waiver requirements page has more details. Even if a student waives out of the insurance, they can still access SHAC if they are taking 5 or more in-load, non-self support credits.
