Health Insurance

Are You Covered?

Your student health fee covers visits to the student health clinics, but does not cover the cost of referrals to specialists, medications, x-rays, hospital or ER visits. We encourage all college students to get health insurance coverage to prevent an illness or accident from causing a financial burden.
