Alcohol and Other Drug Education

The counselor serves as a coordinator for networking members of the University community with local and regional programs and services that assist individuals with alcohol and/or drug abuse related problems.

International Student Health Insurance Requirements

MSU requires regularly enrolled international students, and those dependent family members living with them in the country, to have health and accident insurance that includes a repatriation benefit. A medical benefits plan for international students is offered through a contracted agent. International students must meet the insurance requirements to complete their enrollment at Morehead State University. The Office of Counseling and Health Services monitors compliance to this program and assists international students with questions relating to health insurance.

It is our experience that most health benefit policies students obtain in their home countries do not meet the minimum requirement of benefits required by the University. These requirements are a $250,000 medical benefit (per accident/illness), $50,000 medical evacuation benefit and a $25,000 repatriation benefit in addition to the policy maximum. For the University to consider a waiver of the insurance requirement, students must present an English translation of benefits with amounts converted to American currency from the insurance company. Premiums are paid on an annual basis.
