Dixie State University International Student Insurance

This blog has been updated to reflect the new insurance requirements for the Dixie State University for the 2020-2021 school year.

Founded in 1911, Dixie State University is a public institution located in an urban, 117 acre setting in Saint George. Because Dixie State College of Utah holds a mission to offer programs that “meet the needs of students, the community, and the state,” international students will find majors in business, management, marketing, communication, education, computer sciences and more. Students have access to services in tutoring, health, and security as well as a location that provides opportunities for hiking, climbing, water sports, and winter sports. International students at Dixie State College of Utah will find personal help with admissions and enrollment, advice for how to succeed as an international student in the United States, planned trips and activities, and support with cross-cultural adjustment and immigration.


Along with the Form I-20, passports, and financial documentation, international students are required to show proof of international student health insurance coverage within thirty days of arrival. Utah also requires all international students to be tested for tuberculosis within thirty days of arrival. Since Dixie State College of Utah requires all international students to hold health insurance coverage during their time studying, students are encouraged to research and choose a plan as early as possible to avoid missing the deadline.

Insurance Plan Options

If you are looking for a Dixie State College International Student Insurance plan, the best place to start is the International Service Office. However, students are encouraged to research plans that will be right for them and are allowed to purchase those health insurance plans to submit as proof to the college. Our International Student Health Insurance plan offers four options for students that are accepted by DSU. These options range in coverage and allow for international students to choose the plan that best suits their budget and lifestyle.

For students who are looking for a more affordable, our Smart and Budget levels offer a balance of saving money as well as ensuring that you are secure and safe. The Select and Elite level plans provides the most extensive coverage. Your plan will not only cover doctor visits, hospitalization, prescriptions, medical evacuation, repatriation of remains, and mental health, but you can also have coverage for maternity, pre-existing condition, and organized sports.

For a student ages 24 and younger, one year costs:

  • Smart – $371.28 per year
  • Budget – $513.24 per year 
  • Select – $1,161.16 per year
  • Elite – $2,140.32 per year

Whether you’re looking to take business classes and hike trails or meet people who will have an impact on your life, Dixie State College of Utah wants to make sure that their students are free to experience these opportunities without the added stress of paying for medical expenses. By researching what plans are right for you, a path of education and inspiration can be the focus of your journey. Students can look at the three levels from our International Student Health Insurance plan for guidance on what they may be looking for. International students who have questions about health insurance, plans, or procedures can contact us for more information.
