All students who paid the Student Wellness Fee are eligible.

Fees are also collected for laboratory tests, procedures, treatments, specialty care services.  These fees are minimal through the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP).

Payment: Payment is due at the time of service check, VISA, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express or CampusCash. No cash accepted.
