Additional Requirements

1. Health Insurance

Medical health insurance/coverage is required before international students can begin classes. After receiving an acceptance letter and arriving in the U.S., health insurance must be purchased. Proof of health insurance must be provided to Mr. M.J. Mao prior to the first day of school.

We recommend students use ISO Insurance. ISO offers a BASIC PLAN and a PLUS PLAN, both at affordable costs.

Students who choose to purchase other health insurance plans must have a minimum coverage that matches the ISO basic plan.

  • Submit ALL pages of your vaccination history, with your name and date of birth clearly listed. Please note that hand-written records are not acceptable. For students who have hand-written immunization records, please complete a translation at your local custom, and provide the school with a digital copy.
