Student Health Insurance Requirement

Due to the inherent risks that pharmacy students are exposed to at experiential education sites, all Pharm.D. students are required to have or purchase high-quality health insurance. All students are automatically enrolled in the OHSU's Student Health Insurance Plan. The 2024-2025 rates for OHSU's plan are $2,183 per term. Students are also required to have dental insurance.  OHSU's dental insurance costs $111.00 per term.

Students who already have a health insurance plan that offers coverage meeting specific criteria can request a waiver of the OHSU Student Health Insurance Plan. Students that anticipate requesting a waiver should carefully review the waiver criteria and requirements on the OHSU student health insurance plan website.  (Note you will need to complete both a medical and a dental waiver)

OSU now has an insurance plan that will meet OHSU's waiver criteria (you still have to submit a waiver to OHSU) and is significantly less expensive.  You can find more information on OSU's plan here. The OSU Pharm.D. plan can be found here. For 2024-2025, OSU's Student Health Insurance costs about $1174 per term (Summer Coverage $1053) ($5337 for 12 months of coverage).  Please check enrollment and waiver deadlines carefully. 

Please note that International Students will be automatically enrolled in the OSU International Student Insurance plan at OSU and then you must complete the OHSU insurance waiver so you aren't billed for double insurance.

The cost of student health insurance is included in students' estimated cost of attendance, which may result in additional financial aid becoming available.

Another alternative that many students choose are the Oregon Health Plan, which is Oregon's Medicaid.  Oregon Health Plan meets the waiver criteria for OHSU (you still have to submit the waiver) but will allow you to receive free healthcare if you qualify.

Residency Information

Information regarding becoming classified as an Oregon resident for tuition purposes is available from the Office of Admissions at 1-800-291-4192. Becoming an Oregon resident typically requires living in Oregon for 12 months and, during that period, being engaged primarily in activities other than being a college student.

Financial Aid Information

Financial aid and scholarships are available to students in all College of Pharmacy programs. Undergraduate, professional and graduate students can apply for aid through the OSU Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships.

  • Pharm.D. and graduate students are eligible for supplemental funding through the college and outside sources.

Clark County Tuition Waiver Program

Residents of Clark County, Washington accepted to the Pharm.D. program are eligible for a nonresident tuition waiver. This waiver will allow selected residents of Clark County to pay the same amount of tuition as Oregon residents.  

Eligible candidates are notified of their selection when offered admission to the professional program. Eligible candidates are automatically considered for the waiver and no separate application is required.

Federally Recognized Indian Tribe In State Tuition Program

Oregon State University students who are enrolled members of the 574 federally recognized Tribes as included on the Federal Register, shall be considered residents of the state of Oregon for tuition purposes. This policy does not qualify nonresident students for financial aid programs administered by the state of Oregon that are available only to residents of Oregon. Students are responsible for obtaining and submitting documentation of their enrollment in one of the 574 federally recognized Tribes at the time of their application for admission to OSU, or at the time of applying for the resident tuition rate.

Non-Oregon Resident Tuition Scholarships

The OSU College of Pharmacy is committed to non-Oregon student accessibility through awarding achievement scholarships to qualified applicants.

A limited number of scholarships may be available for incoming professional students, but an application is not necessary or required.
