What is the Student Health Fee and Why Do I Have to Pay It?
The Health Fee that students are assessed is a mandatory fee for all students taking 5 or more in-load, non self-support credits. The fee is in place to support the Center for Student Health and Counseling. Health professionals from this department promote health and safety on campus through committees such as the HIV and Safety Committees and the Interpersonal Violence Task Force. They also lecture to classes on health related topics and act as consultants for faculty. They respond to health emergencies on campus such as TB, suicide and sexual assault. If students have personal insurance and do not wish to utilize the Center for their personal care they are still reaping the benefits of having health officers on campus, ensuring PSU is a healthy place for them to attend classes.
