Student Health Fee
The Student Health fee covers a variety of services each semester and includes unlimited visits to the Student Health Center. The Student Health Fee is designed to cut costs not covered by primary health insurance, including co-pays and co-insurance. It also ensures the quality care you need without delay. The Student Health Fee is a result of the benefit for health care services and not an insurance program. Visit the Student Health Center for insurance questions.
