All international students are required to have health insurance in place. International students, not including Canadians, are automatically enrolled by semester in the student insurance plan by their institution. The premium cost is billed to the international student's Campus Connection account. Student health insurance payments will be collected in full no later than the end of the sixth week of a regular fall or spring term or equivalent date for a summer term or classes outside a regular term.

International 1042 Tax
Please be aware if you are considered a nonresident in the United States you may be subject to 1042 tax withholding. Taxable income occurs when scholarships and waivers awarded are more than tuition, fees, and required books.
All excess awards over the required charges are deemed taxable by the United States Internal Revenue Service. 1042 tax amounts are determined on your account each semester. If an amount of 1042 tax applies to you, a charge will be placed on your Campus Connection Student Account and a detailed email will be sent out, as well.
Williston State College acts solely as the withholding agent. It is not the practice or policy of Williston State College to provide tax advice. You should consult your tax professional concerning your situation.
