Graduate Student Health Fee

The mandatory Student Health Fee is NOT insurance. It is charged to graduate students enrolled in 5 or more credits.

This fee entitles the student to be seen at UHS without paying co-pays and co-insurance for visits with UHS providers. Patients are responsible for any required insurance plan deductibles. The fee supports an array of programs and services, including health education and promotion services, four (4) initial visits for mental health crisis management, public health, and emergency preparedness activities.
