Health Insurance and Immunizations


South Dakota Board of Regents (SDBOR) requires all F-1visa holding international students and their F-2 visa holding dependents to have health insurance as a condition of enrollment at Dakota State University (see Policy 3:14). SDBOR Student Health Insurance, myHealth, is a student injury and sickness insurance policy designed especially for our students. MyHealth can be purchased on an annual basis or by semester (fall and spring/summer). You and your dependents are required to be covered by myHealth the entire time you are in the U.S. - even if you are not enrolled in classes during the summer, you are still required to be insured. A lapse in coverage will affect your eligibility for future coverage.

All students are obligated to demonstrate immunity to measles, mumps and rubella.

Acceptable Evidence of Immunity to MMR Includes:

  • Immunization record which specifies administration of two doses of the MMR vaccine.
  • Medical laboratory report that proves immunity to MMR. i.e., Titer Reports.

You will not be able to register for classes if you do not comply with the immunizations policy.

Meningococcal and Hepatitis B vaccines are recommended. Please visit DSU Health Services for further information.
