  • Insurance

    All international students and dependents that are on Capital University’s immigration document must carry insurance which meets the U.S. Affordable Health Care act and has medical evacuation coverage of US$50,000 and repatriation of remains at US$25,000.

    Capital University automatically enrolls international students in an insurance plan that meets the U.S. Affordable Health Care Act and is designed for international students.
