If you have received a Purdue Graduate Fellowship, you are eligible to enroll in a health insurance plan for you and your dependents.
Purdue University will include the portion of your stipend that pays for your insurance coverage in both August and December payroll checks. Enrollment and premium payment for a “student only” coverage will be on an annual or semester basis. If you choose to enroll a spouse and/or children, you are responsible for paying the entire premium for these dependents. However, you have the option of paying on a monthly basis due to the higher costs of the premiums.
It is a requirement for international students that you purchase the Purdue University Student Health Insurance plan. Very limited waivers are available for select international students.
Annual vs. Semester Enrollments
We encourage students to enroll and pay for the Annual plan. Though a student has the option of enrolling separately for Fall and Spring/Summer, it is more advantageous to purchase the Annual plan. Students must meet the eligibility requirements only once if the annual plan is purchased. When purchasing Fall and Spring/Summer, the eligibility must be met at the beginning of each coverage period. Example: If enrolling for fall only, with plans to purchase the Spring/Summer later in December, and an event occurs in December that prohibits the return to classes, the individual will not have the option of purchasing the Spring/Summer plan. If that event was a medical emergency that had continued medical bills occurring in January and the individual was unable to meet the eligibility requirement, the student insurance plan would terminate 12/31. It could be devastating to not have the insurance when most needed.
