Immunization and Insurance

Health and Immunization Requirements

New York University requires all students (graduate, undergraduate, transfer, and returning students) who are taking six or more credits to submit a basic health history form and proof of certain vaccinations, including MMR (麻疹, 风疹, 腮腺炎) and meningitis. We strongly encourage all international students to follow US CDC vaccine recommendations for China.

Health Insurance Requirements

All NYU Shanghai students are required to have health insurance.

All international students at NYU Shanghai are required to have GeoBlue international insurance which offers global coverage for the full academic year. More information on insurance regarding US/international students can be found here.

We highly recommend Chinese national students enroll in the PingAn - Complimentary insurance while studying at the NYU Shanghai campus. This covers inpatient service, which supplements mandatory Chinese Citizen Insurance.

All Chinese national students traveling outside China on university-related programs are required to purchase Geoblue Study Away insurance if they wish to participate. This includes conferences, summer courses, internships, and study abroad programs.

Please contact regarding any insurance related questions.
