Health Insurance

Students are not required to have health insurance to be seen at Student Health & Counseling (SHAC). However, SHAC strongly recommends that all students have health insurance to help defray the costs of health care. Health and accident insurance is available to students enrolled for six or more hours per semester. See “Student Health Insurance” below.
