The Student Health Fee of $22 per fall and spring semesters and $18 per summer session covers most services at ECC's Student Health Services, with no need for insurance or a co-pay.

Student Health Services is solely supported by the student health fee.



Additional Information

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:

  1. Students who depend exclusively upon prayer for healing in accordance with the teachings of a bona fide religious sect, denomination or organization. Students who qualify for this exception may obtain a Health Services Fee Waiver form in the Student Support Services Division Office. All fee-waiver requests must be submitted by the second week of the term.
  2. Students will not be required to pay the student health fee if they are enrolled only in noncredit classes or apprenticeship classes.

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.
