Medical Insurance

All international students on an F-1 visa that are enrolled at El Camino College are required to purchase medical insurance through our college-approved carrier. The cost is $1,263 per calendar year (12 months) and is split into two payments of $631.50 billed with your tuition at time of registration for each semester (fall and spring). More information about the student medical insurance plan for ECC students can be found at Student Insurance
