It is very important for students to maintain their health to achieve learning success.  The International Student Center will do our best to help you with your health needs.

All F-1 students are required to buy PCC international student health insurance according to the District policy. Students purchase health insurance when registering for classes.

If you need any assistance, you may stop by the International Student Center (D-204).  We are your home away from home and you are always welcome to come in for help.
