All international students admitted to GMUK are required by university policy to sign up for health insurance coverage at the link provided below in order to be eligible to attend classes. We recommend that students opt for the LIBERTY Plan (approx. $450 a year), which meets many of the minimum requirements of an acceptable health insurance plan.

The Mason Korea Code is “SB212”.
