The main purpose of the insurance is to deal with an injury, illness or emergencies. The insurance does not cover dental or vision expenses. The College offers two health insurance plan options including coverage for collegiate athletics. You will receive an email from the St. Scholastica Office of International Programs in July informing you how to enroll in the college health insurance. Learn more about health insurance.
St. Scholastica Office of International Programs will send you an email about your priority status with student employment.

Learn more about student employment.
