ALL MATRICULATED NYU STUDENTS HAVE ACCESS TO CARE AT THE STUDENT HEALTH CENTER.
Many services at the Student Health Center (SHC) are provided at no cost to all matriculated students. The Sample of Services (PDF) chart gives examples of the types of SHC services that are provided at no cost as well as those services for which there is a fee.
The high cost of healthcare in the United States presents a potentially serious financial risk to students. Therefore NYU requires that all students registered in degree-granting programs maintain health insurance.
Most students are enrolled automatically in one of the NYU-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plans.
Students must complete the online enrollment/waiver process each academic year beginning in the fall to:
- ensure that they are enrolled in the plan of their choice;
- supplement their current insurance with an NYU-sponsored plan, or
- waive the NYU-sponsored plans.
