All students that pay an annual health fee are entitled to visit the Student Health Center as often as needed. For lab work, prescription costs, and special services (like driver’s physicals) extra costs may be incurred.

The Student Health Center is staffed by an administrative assistant/coordinator of insurance and vaccinations staff member as well as certified nurse practitioners that are available to assist in meeting the confidential health care needs of our full time students. Confidentiality may only be broken if a student is considered to be a danger to self or others.

Within the Student Health Center is a waiting room stocked with health-related reference materials and pamphlets, as well as a Self-Care Station stocked with common over-the-counter medications. Students may avail themselves of these supplies during office hours.

Health Form Requirement

All full-time students are required to submit a completed health form that includes a medical history, recent physical exam and documentation of the required immunizations and testing. Forms are available in the Student Health Center and must be submitted prior to attending classes as a new or returning student. The University reserves the right to deny housing, refuse preventive health care services or withhold registration for any student who does not meet the pre-matriculation health requirements.

Insurance Requirment:

All full-time students are required to be covered by a medical insurance policy. Students that do not provide the needed insurance information will be charged for the university sponsored insurance plan.

In adherence with immigration laws, all international students must demonstrate minimal standards of adequate health insurance. International students will need to show proof of adequate insurance at the Student Health Center each academic year. Insurance will be considered adequate if the carrier is licensed to do business in the United States with a U.S. based office and telephone number. The insurance must be valid for the academic year.

It is the students' responsibility to ensure that they are covered either through private insurance or through the University - sponsored health-insurance plan. Full-time students may choose to purchase the University-sponsored plan at any time by contacting the Business Office at 215.951.9588. Any changes in insurance coverage should always be reported to the Student Health Center.

Current insurance information must be provided to the Student Health Center the second Friday in September for students registered for the fall semester and the first Friday in February for students that did not start in the Fall and that are registered for the spring semester.

If insurance information is not submitted on-line (international students must submit in person) before the above deadline dates, then the student will automatically be enrolled int he University-sponsored health insurance plan and the student will be charged for the insurance.  The student will then be responsible for paying this fee.
