Health Insurance

All students attending classes at the Institute are required to show proof of health insurance. Obtaining health insurance through MIIS is optional, however, students who do not have proof of insurance will be required to enroll into the Institute’s health insurance program. If you are covered by a personal health care plan during the summer, then you will need to "waive" the insurance option online. Visit the following page of the Office of Student Services to waive OR enroll into the MIIS insurance plan.

To waive out of the MIIS insurance plan, please visit the website for the Office of Student Services. If you are an incoming MIIS graduate student you can enroll in the MIIS insurance plan using the same website. If you are not an incoming MIIS graduate student and you would like to enroll in our MIIS monthly or session insurance plan, please contact our office at languages@miis.edu or 831-647-4115.

Personal Expenses

The estimated student budget (above) does not include all expenses such as credit card or other consumer debt and living expenses for a spouse and/or dependents. The category of personal expenses includes laundry, household supplies, and entertainment. You should prepare a personal budget to anticipate your financial needs.
