Student Health Fee

This is a mandatory fee for all students who are enrolled in at least one course on the main campus, including online courses. It supports the cost of staffing the Center for Student Health and Psychological Services, and it provides for a variety of medical, psychological and health education services. This fee covers many, but not all, of the services available in the Center for Student Health and Psychological Services . Some of the services are offered on a fee-for-service basis. Students who fall into one of the following categories are exempt from this fee and can deduct it from their bills:

  • Students registered in programs requiring that they be more than 35 miles away from the Plattsburgh campus (such as student teaching, study abroad, internships, co-ops), branch campus students; and those students taking all independent study courses).
  • Full-time employees of SUNY Plattsburgh or the Research Foundation who are enrolled in classes (excludes graduate assistants and dorm assistantships).
  • Students enrolled in three credit hours or less who commute more than 35 miles each way to campus.
  • Students enrolled in only online courses who live more than 35 miles away from campus.
  • Students enrolled in three credit hours or less whose only classes begin after 4 p.m.

The director of the center or designee will consider extraordinary exemption requests. Refund requests must be made within 30 days of the first day of the semester.
