Health and Wellness

Your health and wellness should be a great priority while studying in the United States. It is important to consider your health care needs and establish healthy behaviors to ensure your academic, social and personal success. There are a variety of resources on MU’s campus to help in your adjustment to life in the United States.

This video teaches international students how to prepare for their arrival in the US, how the US healthcare system works and how students should seek medical care appropriately if they become sick or injured.

Medical Packet

Health Services requires all Millersville students to complete health evaluation forms included in the Medical Packet. All forms must be completed in English or be submitted with a certified translation. All new international students are required to complete the Medical Packet as a part of the pre-arrival process.

Counseling Services

Adjusting to life in a new culture can weigh heavily on you as an international student. It is important to know the signs related to homesickness and reach out to on-campus professionals if you feel you may be suffering from long-term sadness or depression that may be affecting your day to day activities.

 The Center for Counseling and Human Development provides support for all Millersville students. Any student can schedule an appointment to meet with a counselor. Visit the Counseling Center website for more information on their services or to schedule an appointment. 

This short video introduces the concepts of mental health for international students in the US. Covering mental health awareness and warning signs, dispelling myths, and showing ways to seek treatment, the video seeks to demystify a complex topic.

Health Insurance

Healthcare costs in the U.S. are very expensive. All international students and scholars must have valid health insurance that provides coverage during their stay in the United States. Carefully consider the insurance coverage you feel is best to fit your medical, dental, medication/prescription, and vision care needs.

Global Education recommends ISO Student Health Insurance plans for Millersville students and scholars. There are many health/medical insurance companies that offer plans for internationals in the U.S. which will provide you with the required minimum coverage. If you choose to go with an insurance company other than ISO, be sure to verify the plan you purchase meets the required minimum coverage outlined in the Health Insurance From
