Graduate Program

Health Care

Graduate students have access to health care through payment of the general fees upon registration. Graduate registration for six or more credits is required to be automatically charged the general fee that includes health services. These basic health services are provided through the on-campus facility: Hartshorn Health Services. Students registered for less than six credits can still access these services by paying the general fee.

Use of the Health Service is paid for by semester fees assessed to full-time students. Part-time students, Division of Continuing Education, GUEST registrants, spouses or co-habitating partners, and children of students may pay the Health Fee on a semester basis and have use of the Health Service.

Many services provided by the Health Service are paid for entirely by the Health Fee. They are:

  • Visits to the staff physician/provider of your choice
  • Mental Health Counseling (up to five visits)
  • Triage Center
  • Alcohol Education

Remember to bring your picture ID when you go forservices. Call the appropriate clinic telephone number or call the main number (970) 491-7121 for appointments.

Required Health Insurance: In addition to basic health coverage accessed by paying general fees, all new, incoming full-fee paying resident-instruction graduate students are required to enroll in the CSU student accident/sickness health insurance plan or to opt-out by demonstrating health insurance coverage at a comparable level. This policy does not impact the current policy of the University that requires all international students, regardless of enrollment status, to demonstrate comprehensive health insurance coverage through either the University health insurance plan or a comparable plan.
