We are excited to offer a comprehensive health plan for our international students!

As you may know, health insurance is a requirement of your enrollment at Cuesta College. Insurance is an important part of maximizing your educational experience in the United States so you can stay healthy and enjoy your experience here on campus.

Confusion about Finding a Plan?

As regulations change in the U.S. and in the state of California, we understand that it has become more confusing for our international students to secure an insurance plan that appropriately covers them throughout their studies here at Cuesta. We strongly believe that the best interest of our international student body is not being met by the insurance plans being purchased recently, and we have listened to countless requests from students for the college to provide a plan that best fits their medical needs.

No More Uncertainty with this New, Unified Plan!

Our students’ health and education will always be our main priority. In order to serve this mission and to create a more streamlined process on campus, Cuesta College requires and enrolls all F-1 international students in an insurance plan through Academic Health Plans (GeoBlue Insurance).   

How to enroll: It's so easy!
