||The Student Health Service fee is mandated by the Board of Trustees for ALL full-time students at Columbia University Medical Center, as well as for all those who enroll in the Aetna Student Health Insurance Plan. In addition, the School of Nursing mandates that ALL clinical nursing students enroll in the Student Health Service, regardless of whether they are full-time OR part-time. The Student Health Service is also an annual plan, although fees are assessed per semester, with 5/12 of the fee due at the beginning of the fall semester, and 7/12 of the fee due at the beginning of the spring semester. If you switch from full-time to part-time during the spring semester, you will still be assessed the spring portion of the SHS fee, and will, of course, be entitled to all SHS services.

If you are a full-time student, you are automatically enrolled in the student insurance plan and must take action to waive. If you are a part-time student, you are NOT automatically enrolled and must take action to enroll.
