happy chinese new year
This month we turn our attention squarely to insurance, with a new white paper we authored to guide colleges and universities through the complexities of choosing and implementing the right insurance plan for their campus. There are a lot of good options out there, including our own group plans which we also address below, but there is no one-size-fits all solution when it comes to the right fit for your students and school. Beyond insurance, we highlight the increasing role that community colleges are playing in international education, and offer a special deal on featured school packages.

Insurance Best Practices Guide

Navigating the world of international insurance can be daunting, even if you are a seasoned international educator. With the introduction of the Affordable Care Act and changes in the J visa insurance regulations, the landscape has become even more complex. And no two institutions are exactly alike in their student populations and campus dynamics.

To help schools determine the best options for their students, we have developed a complete overview of the landscape of international student insurance. Our new best practices white paper is titled “Selecting and Managing International Student Health Insurance,” and it helps you determine what insurance is mandated by law, your role in the process, how to evaluate your student population, whether and what type of group plan is right for you, what benefits to consider, how to choose a broker and carrier, guidance on administration and more. It is a free download, or is available to read online:

Community Colleges Pitch their Value Proposition

More and more community colleges across the US are beginning to focus on international recruiting to boost campus enrollments. So why would international students be interested in studying at a community college? It is all in their value proposition, and here’s why:

  1. Community colleges are less expensive than a typical 4-year college or university.
  2. They do not have some of the rigorous admission requirements many institutions have, making the admission, transcript and enrollment process easier.
  3. A lot of community colleges offer English as a Second Language (ESL) programs, putting aside any language obstacles.
  4. They have done a great job formulating 2+2 partnerships and articulation agreements with four-year colleges and universities.
