Health Services

The Student Health Center offers medical treatment to students with minor or short-term illnesses. This service is free for all UC students provided they have complied with the College’s health requirements. All students are required to provide the Student Health Center with the following:

  • Health Form
  • Current immunization information, including proof of two MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccinations 
  • Health insurance provider and policy number (you may purchase here)

Because it is mandatory that you complete a health form, it is suggested that you visit your physician before you leave for your study abroad. The Student Health Center at UC can schedule a physical exam for a charge of $60. They can also make arrangements for you to receive MMR immunizations at a low cost.

Medical treatment, even if only minor, is very expensive in the United States. UC requires that all international students have health insurance, with additional coverage for medical evacuation and repatriation expenses.

All international students, new and returning, are automatically enrolled in the College’s International Student health plan. The cost for the year is approximately $1200. For more information about the international health plan please contact the Office of International Education at 315-792-3082
