Health Requirements and Insurance

Syracuse University Health Services helps you stay well while you pursue your studies. Health Services provides primary care with an emphasis on wellness and health promotion.

The Health Services fee is mandatory for all graduate students registered for nine or more credits during the semester. The Health Services fee for the 2018-2019 academic year is $375 per semester. (If you are a graduate student with a University graduate fellowship, a full-time graduate assistantship, or a graduate associateship, this fee is included as part of your award package.) Payment of the fee entitles students to unlimited office visits at the Health Center, Syracuse University Ambulance and medical transportation services, health education services, nutrition services, and services provided by the Counseling Center and the Advocacy Center. Laboratory and pharmacy services are charged separately.

New York State law requires that students born on or after January 1, 1957 submit proof of immunization and other medical records. Information about these requirements is available from Health Services, located in the Barnes Center at The Arch or from the Graduate School website.

Graduate assistants and associates are eligible to participate in the University’s Group Health Care Plan. Visit the Barnes Center at The Arch website for more information about student health insurance coverage details and rates.
