Food and Meal PlansDepending upon their housing placement, students may be required or wish to purchase a meal plan. For more information about dining plans, visit www.csusb.edu/dining. There are several places to eat food on or close to campus, which is listed here.
Mandatory Health InsuranceBecause of the high cost of health care in the United States, the U.S. government requires that all Exchange Visitors and accompanying dependents be covered by adequate health and accident insurance while in this country. Failure to carry adequate insurance may lead to termination of your exchange visitor status. More information is listed on our How to Get a J-1 Student Visa webpage.
Mandatory OrientationAll exchange students will participate in a mandatory orientation that takes place before classes begin. The cost is $70 USD, regardless of the time of attendance (updated in Fall 2020). Please visit www.csusb.edu/cisp/student-services/newly-admitted-students/orientation-program for more information.
