The North Dakota University System (NDUS) is pleased to offer health insurance coverage to international NDUS students through United Healthcare insurance company. Domestic students (i.e. American citizens) are not required by the NDUS to carry coverage; however, the Affordable Care Act does require that you carry some sort of health insurance.
To learn more about these plans or to enroll, please contact the Business Office. Visit the NDUS website to learn more about coverage options and eligibility requirements.
