  • The coverage for international students includes repatriation and medical evacuation benefits.
  • The Student Health Insurance Program is also available for part-time students, both undergraduate and graduate, as well as for dependent children and spouses of students who are enrolled in the plan.  Dependent children and spouses must be enrolled directly by complete the forms located at: http://www.studentinsurance.com/Schools/NJ/NJIT/.
