Health Services Fee Adjustment

In response to a growing demand for student health care, Student Health and Counseling Services (SHCS) is engaging students about the health fee adjustment, which will be effective Fall 2018. We invite you to learn about the solutions, student health fee adjustment, and ways students can share their feedback.

The Issue & History

A health fee adjustment is necessary to offset an expected budget deficit for 2017 / 2018.  The health fee of $225 per year has not increased since 2009 and the current fee is below CSU average of $272 per year.  A 2005 fee referendum, voted on by students, authorized the Student Health and Counseling Services (SHCS) in 2009 to increase the fees each year according to the medical price index. (approximately 3% per year).  In an order to minimize the burden on students the SHCS decided to exhaust its financial reserves before increasing the fees. A health fee adjustment is now essential in order to provide the staff, equipment and supplies needed to meet the ongoing needs of students.

If the fee is not adjusted, the SHCS will need to reduce the medical, mental health, and wellness services for students.
