Students pay $22 per semester ($18 per summer term) to cover the operation, supervision, programs and services of the Student Health Center. Students must have paid the health fee and be currently enrolled and attending at least one for-credit course to access the services provided by Student Health Services. The Student Health Center is closed during the winter term.
There are exceptions under these conditions:
All the above students exempted from paying the health services fee, if currently enrolled and attending at least one for-credit, may choose to pay the fee through the Cashier’s Office at any time during the exempted term in order to access Student Health Services.
Student health services are provided for students 18 years of age or older who pay the mandatory fee. High school students permitted to attend the college on a concurrent enrollment basis are not eligible for student health services.
College students under 18 years of age who are subject to other admissions criteria must pay the student health fee and submit a parental or guardian consent form to receive most services.
Children, including children of students, are not permitted in the Student Health Center.
