All incoming exchange students are required to carry adequate health insurance. Rutgers University offers health insurance and will automatically bill you for this insurance unless you show proof of other coverage that is equal to Rutgers insurance coverage. A guide to minimum insurance requirements at Rutgers can be found here, but students will not be considered exempt until their policy has been reviewed by Rutgers. During the application process students will have the opportunity to complete an Insurance Waiver form and to submit a copy of their current coverage. This will be reviewed by our International Office and students will be notified if their coverage meets Rutgers minimum requirements.
Each campus at Rutgers has a health center for students. On the College Avenue Campus, there is the Hurtado Health Center, located at 11 Bishop Place, near Clothier Hall. More information about on-campus health services can be found at the Rutgers Health Center website: http://health.rutgers.edu/.
