Insurance & Health

We require all exchange students be enrolled in an insurance plan provided by Rose-Hulman. Our plan meets the U.S. government’s insurance requirements for the J-1 exchange program. Enrollment in the plan is mandatory. Students will be charged the applicable fee on their Rose-Hulman student invoice. To learn more about the coverage, as well as fees/costs, please visit the insurance carrier’s website

Immunization Records and Health Services

Prior to arrival, you will need to submit your immunization records to the staff inHealth Services.You’ll also need to provide medical records showing current immunizations for tetanus, MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella), and polio virus. Students from abroad are also required to have a TB skin test performed by Health Services upon their arrival oncampus. The fee for this test is $5.

The forms are available to download on the Health Services Forms website. Look under the heading “Exchange Students.” Once you have completed all the forms, please send them to

Selecting & Registering for Classes

When you arrive on campus, you will meet your department chairperson in your major area of study. He or she will serve as your academic advisor during your time at Rose-Hulman. Your advisor will review your course selections and help you register for your courses.

To find courses, you will need to visit our Course Catalog, where you will find descriptions of all the courses we offer.

Not all courses are offered at all times, so it is important to understand the labeling system behind each course title. This sample diagram shows the labeling system.
