Student Health Insurance

All MSPA program students are required to maintain health insurance to help cover the cost of health care received by providers outside the Student Health Center. Through campus fees, MSPA students are automatically eligible for free health and counseling care at the Student Health Center and Counseling and Psychological Services. Although basic health care is provided by the Student Health Center, major illness, and injury, as well as certain conditions requiring a specialist or hospitalization, are beyond the scope of service. Students requiring additional care will be referred to an outside provider.

For more information on health insurance, please visit the Student Health Center page on insurance and eligibility.
