The Ventura County Community College District (VCCCD) requires coverage for health and accident insurance for all International Students (F-1 Visa). If you already have insurance prior to enrolling in school, you must provide the name of your insurance company, policy number, expiration date and policy coverage limits in English to see if your policy can be accepted and waived. There is not guarantee you will be able to keep your previous insurance. If you do not have health insurance coverage, you must obtain insurance in the U.S. prior or upon arrival at the college and prior to your enrollment in classes. After arrival in the US, your policy must be purchased from the district-approved provider.  Information is available for you in the International Student Office.
