Does NYIT provide health insurance for international students?

The school’s health insurance plan for international students is offered through Aetna Student Health. NYIT’s student insurance provides accident and sickness coverage, and can be used both in the United States and in your home country. This insurance is mandatory for all F-1 and J-1 students. International students are automatically billed by NYIT. Some students choose to keep an additional policy from their home country.  

You can review the insurance plan at www.aetnastudenthealth.com, click on "Find Your School", and type in NYIT and choose the international plan.
