Medical visits and emergencies can be very costly in the U.S. San Jose City College requires all international students to purchase and subscribe to the health insurance plan selected by the San Jose/Evergreen Community College District. SJCC does not accept any other U.S. or foreign-based insurance plans. Only students who meet certain eligibility criteria may request a waiver by completing a health insurance waiver form and providing the required proof by the first day of each semester.

Do not go to the hospital for minor illnesses or injuries! If you need to see a doctor immediately and cannot wait for a scheduled appointment, please go to an urgent care center. Hospital emergency rooms typically charge 2-3 times more than a doctor’s office or urgent care center. Use an urgent care center instead of an emergency room to save time and money.
