University Health Service


Students should have health insurance to help cover:

In case you are ill or injured:
Students are responsible for payment of costs not covered by the health service fee, including medication, emergency room visits, hospitalizations or ambulance service, and any services outside UHS.  If you do not have insurance, consider purchasing the Domestic Student Health Insurance Plan.

In case you need to withdraw from school for medical or psychological reasons:
The University offers a plan that refunds tuition and University Housing costs.  For a very reasonable cost, you can protect your financial investment for the entire year. Consider purchasing Tuition Insurance.

In case you experience a health problem while traveling abroad: 
The University offers a plan that can reduce the impact of health problems on study, work, volunteer and leisure travel while abroad. For more information, see Travel Abroad Health Insurance.
