International Student Resources

OU Health Services welcomes all international students to the University of Oklahoma. We want you to know that we are happy to serve as your healthcare on campus and while in the United States. We know that accessing healthcare abroad can be overwhelming. On this page are a few of the most common topics international students have questions about when accessing healthcare on campus.


Student Health Plan

The University offers a health insurance plan for students. This may be an excellent option for students who may not have insurance coverage or whose out-of-state insurance only covers emergency visits in the Norman area.

OUHS is the primary service provider of the plan, but we are not the plan administrators. This means we can’t always tell you if your charges are covered by the SHP or how much your out-of-pocket costs will be. However, most students have little to no out-of-pocket expenses with visits at Goddard Health Center (benefit coverage does change when receiving care outside of Goddard). More information about benefit coverage can be found here and the cost of the student health plan can be found here.
