Important Health Insurance Requirement

All international students on an Edmonds CC I-20 are required to buy health insurance through the school-contracted plan, LewerMark Agency. Health insurance will be automatically added to the student's registration records upon arriving on campus. For first-time Edmonds CC international students, coverage begins the moment the student gets on the plane for the United States or 30 days before the first day of class. The insurance charge for the 2014-2015 school year is $245.50 per quarter.
