International students regardless of credit hours are automatically enrolled in the Student Health Insurance plan unless proof of comparable coverage is furnished. The College health insurance coverage is not comprehensive. The main purpose of the insurance is to deal with an injury, illness or emergencies. The insurance does not cover dental or vision expenses. You will receive an email from the St. Scholastica Office of International Programs in July with additional information about the college’s health insurance. Learn more about health insurance.
St. Scholastica's Office of International Programs will send you an email about your priority status with student employment. Either you have been offered student employment as part of your scholarship and you have priority to look for a job on campus now, or you did not receive student employment as part of your scholarship and you will have to wait to look for work after the semester has started. Learn more about student employment.
