Health Services and Student Insurance fees are not the same.

Student Insurance is not available at this time.

The student insurance climate has changed with the Affordable Care Act.  These changes have impacted our ability to provide students with healthcare coverage.  However, some students may be able to continue on their parents insurance with proof of status as a full-time student. Others are able to get coverage through the federal exchange at https://www.healthcare.gov/.
