Health Services and Benefits

Students appointed to full academic-year assistantships have comprehensive health insurance as employees. All full-time students, by paying the student fee, and those part-time students who elect to pay the student health service and insurance fees, are insured for up to $5,000 in medical expenses brought about by illness or injury. This policy provides excess coverage over any other insurance plans. Students have the option to purchase a major medical policy sponsored by the university that provides more extensive coverage. Students also may purchase coverage for their spouse and children at additional cost. Any student not covered by individual or family policies should consider this more extensive coverage.

If you have any questions, please contact a benefits specialist by telephone (848-932-8285).
