Meal Plan Information
Student Health Center
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. If you have insurance which will cover you during your stay abroad, please bring this documentation with you.
If you do not have health insurance coverage for the time you are in the U.S., the College has a plan available to you. The Office of International Education also has information on other health insurance plans for internationals. Even with health insurance, you will be responsible for a $50-100 deductible for each new illness or injury. The Office of International Education will provide assistance with questions or concerns regarding insurance coverage or claims.
