Student Health Insurance Options

At Golden Gate University, domestic and international students are responsible for obtaining their own health insurance coverage. However, we very strongly recommend that international students and their accompanying family members (F-1, J-1, B1/B2 visa holders) have health insurance while in the United States. It is important to be aware that the United States healthcare system is quite different from the system in your home country. Having health insurance coverage while in the U.S. is crucial as costs can be extremely high if you are injured or sick and do not have coverage.

Health insurance is required for GGU domestic and international students who will avail of UC Hastings Academic Village and Academic of Art University Student Housing.

For more information about health insurance coverage, please visit the following public and private providers and marketplaces:
