Colorado School of Mines International Student Insurance

General Information

The Colorado School of Mines, located in Golden, Colorado, was established in 1874. It opened as the Territorial School of Mines in what was then known as Golden City, Colorado, a supply center for miners and settlers in the area. Colorado became a U.S. state two years later, and the school changed its name accordingly to its present name. The first diplomas were awarded in 1883, and the first female student graduated in 1898. Early courses focused on chemistry, metallurgy, mineralogy, and drawing as they applied to collecting gold and silver. Its focus later expanded to the study of harnessing energy and sustaining the environment.

Today, the Colorado School of Mines enrolls more than 6,000 students and counting each year. The school colors are blue and silver, and its athletic nickname is the Orediggers.

Academic Offerings

Colorado School of Mines offers almost 20 undergraduate degrees and more than 30 master’s degree programs. Several different sources have ranked it as the best institution in the world for mineral engineering and mining engineering. It’s also the only school in the world to offer doctoral programs in the five major earth sciences: geology and geological engineering, geophysics, geochemistry, mining engineering, and petroleum engineering. More recently, the school has also delved into celestial prospecting and interstellar exploration; it launched the world’s first graduate program in space resources in fall 2018.

Colorado School of Mines has partnerships with several government agencies and laboratories including the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the Bureau of Reclamation, and the U.S. Geological Survey. 

On Campus

Longstanding traditions at the university include the “M Climb,” in which incoming freshmen carry a ten-pound rock up a nearby mountain, whitewash it, and retrieve it four years later as graduating seniors; and Engineers’ Days (E-Days), a three-day festival each spring featuring a fireworks show, live music, a cardboard boat race, and the Ore Cart Pull, which involves pulling an ore cart 7.5 miles to the Colorado State Capitol building.

Notable Alumni

Notable Colorado School of Mines alumni include Arden L. Bement, Jr., former director of the National Science Foundation; author Robert H. Waterman, Jr.; golf club designer and golf player Marty Jertson; and journalist George Saunders.

Colorado School of Mines International Student Insurance Requirements

Exchange Visitors

All J-1 Exchange Visitors and their J-2 dependents must maintain health insurance for the duration of their stay in the U.S. The Department of State has issued the following insurance requirements for J-1 and J-2 policies. These requirements include medical benefits of at least $100,000 per accident or illness; coverage for repatriation of remains of at least $25,000; coverage for expenses related to emergency medical evacuation of at least $50,000; and a deductible not to exceed $500 per accident or illness. Exchange visitors are responsible for obtaining an insurance policy that meets these requirements prior to the beginning of the J-1 program.

J-1s with remunerated appointments may be eligible for employee insurance. This insurance does not cover emergency medical evacuation or repatriation of remains. If you are eligible for this plan as a J-1, you will need to purchase an additional policy that provides these benefits. J-1s with non-remunerated appointments are not eligible for any insurance benefits offered by the Colorado School of Mines. J-1 exchange visitors are not required to have policies that adhere to the requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) unless they have been in the U.S. for five or more consecutive years.

International Students

All international students on F or J visas, regardless of degree-seeking status, must purchase the Colorado School of Mines Student Health Insurance Plan, unless they purchase another plan that meets specific requirements to waive. These requirements include: a maximum benefit of at least $2,000,000; a plan that includes participating health care providers in the Denver metro area for both emergency and non-emergency health care services; prescription drug benefits; must provide at least 20 outpatient visits for mental health care services and at least 30 days of inpatient mental health care services; must be in effect on the first day of classes without any waiting period or pre-existing condition exclusion and remain in effect for the academic year; have an annual total out of pocket of $8,000 or less; and has coverage while traveling abroad. If the international student’s current plan meets ACA guidelines, it will meet the requirements to waive. 

Please contact our office if you would like more information. This information may be subject to change based on a health insurance waiver or compliance form.
