Health & Wellness

Student health and safety is an important concern of the College. There are several resources available to students to aid in remaining healthy and managing illness and injury. When seeking health care services, students are responsible for any co-pays or deductibles required by their plan.

Health Insurance Requirement

All matriculated students must carry personal health insurance while in attendance.

Private Health Care

Students are strongly urged to develop and/or maintain a relationship with a health-care provider of their own choosing. None of the services available to students can replace private physician services. The College and Crouse Health do not assume medical or financial responsibility for illness or correction of physical defects while students are in the program.
