Student Health and Wellness Fee 

The purpose of the Student Health and Wellness Fee is to provide Tulane Students with comprehensive, medical, mental health, and health promotion services. The fee is automatically assessed to most full time undergraduate, graduate and professional students. The fee provides student’s access to the Uptown and Downtown Health Center for medical visits, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), and services provided through the Center for Wellness & Health Promotion (theWELL). The fee allows students to see campus providers at any of these locations and to participate in sponsored programs or activities at no additional charge.

Student Health Insurance

Any student (part-time, continuing studies, or other) not automatically assessed the fee must pay the fee in order to have access to services. The fee will be charged at the time of service.

Fee Structure

1. Fall Semester (July 1-December 31): $320.00
2. Spring Semester (January 1- June 30): $320.00

4. Students who are not automatically assessed the fee may use (the SHC) our Referral

Any person presenting in acute distress and in need of immediate attention or service, will be assessed and cared for based on best practice which could include calling Tulane Emergency Medical Services (TEMS) or a referral to a community provider. The mission of Student Health Center and CAPS is to ensure that all students receive the best and most appropriate care possible.
