Australian Exchange - Health Insurance
Stetson requires all students participating in study abroad programs to obtain health insurance coverage for travel outside the U.S. Stetson has secured an insurance plan with Chartis. A charge of $275 for the academic semester will be charged to each student's account participating in this program. Students are encouraged to review the Frequently Asked Questions on the Chartis website.
In order to obtain your student visa for Australia, you are required to purchase Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). This coverage is in addition to the Chartis coverage required by Stetson above, and the cost ranges between AUD $250-$300. Further information about this coverage can be found at www.oshcallianzassistance.com.au .
For assistance, please contact the International Programs Office. These insurance requirements cannot be waived.
