Health Insurance


California State University, Fullerton requires international students to purchase health insurance administered by Wells Fargo Student Insurance Services. In order to attend classes at Cal State Fullerton, all F-1, J-1 and J-2 visa holders are required to purchase health insurance through Wells Fargo. Certain groups (such as government-sponsored students) may be exempt if they provide documentation from their government that they are fully-sponsored for tuition, housing, health insurance and other incidentals.

Your health insurance policy helps cover the expense of:

  • Visits to the doctor, hospital or urgent care
  • Unexpected illness and/or injuries
  • Medical evaluation
  • Repatriation
  • Medicine

To help you purchase the required Wells Fargo student health insurance, we have provided you a step by step video.
