Health insurance is required by ODU and is a necessity in the U.S. because the cost of health care is extremely expensive. Students are responsible for reporting proof of insurance to the International Office each semester.

ODU's preferred insurance partner is ISP and students can self-enroll online, here: coverage2u.com/school/ohio-dominican-university/.

Ohio Dominican's Business Office issues an online billing statement for each semester's tuition and fees. Subsequent monthly statements are issued for accounts with unpaid balances. 

All payments are made with a credit or debit card online through ODU's Online Bill Pay system.
