Health Insurance

All Summer College students are required to have health insurance that is written by a U.S.-based company. Short-term health insurance is offered by many U.S. companies and is needed to pay for any medical attention you may need.  Companies our students have previously used include USI Affinity Travel Services ( for international students and Agile Health Insurance ( for US students. While travel insurance may assist you with travel costs in the event of an emergency, it will not satisfy Duke Summer College’s medical insurance requirement, as many policies do not cover medical bills. Prior to attending Summer College, you will be required to submit proof of U.S.-based health insurance. Please note that Summer College students are not permitted to use Duke Student Health Services, including the Duke’s Counseling and Psychological Services.
