How can I learn about financial aid?
Students who have submitted their applications are eligible to seek personal counseling from the University’s Financial Aid Office.
Up to $12,500 in Federal Stafford Loan funding is available for a 12-month period. A variety of private educational loans are also available to assist with the costs not covered by the Federal Stafford Loan funding, including any costs incurred for preparatory coursework that extends beyond 12-months.
If you have additional questions regarding financial aid, please contact us.
Full-time Post-Baccalaureate students may set up four-month payment plans for each semester during the academic year with the University Bursar.
Why do I need to pay a health fee and what does it cover?
All full-time students pay the mandatory health fee, which covers the cost of primary care visits with physicians, nurse practitioners and registered nurses at the University Health Service, time-limited psychotherapy at the University Counseling Center, and health education services and public health/disease prevention programs offered through the University Health Service.
This fee entitles students to use the University Health Service and the University Counseling Center throughout the academic year and the following summer (September 1 through August 31) as long as the student is enrolled on a full-time basis.
In addition to the mandatory health fee, all full-time students must have health insurance coverage. Students can enroll in health insurance offered through the University, or they can have their own or be covered through parents or a spouse.
Health insurance generally covers the cost of services such as hospitalization, diagnostic laboratory tests and x-rays, and surgical procedures. Students should have an understanding of what their insurance covers and when a referral is needed.
Every year, all full-time students must complete the online Health Insurance Selection Process (on the UHS home page) before the start of classes to let the University Health Service know if they will be enrolling in the insurance offered by the University, or if they will remain on their own (or their parents' or spouse's) insurance.
Students with questions about the health insurance offered through the University Health Service can contact the UHS Insurance Advisor or call (585) 275-2637 for assistance.
