Student Health Center Fee

«Back to New Student Requirements

Students TalkingAll students are required to pay the Student Health Center Fee which covers most primary care services provided at the Engemann Student Health Center. This fee covers most services, however, there may be nominal fees for some including laboratory tests, immunizations, copies of x-rays and copies of medical records. Please see the Price List for additional fees.

The student health fee does not cover services provided outside the student health center particularly in an emergency situation where hospitalization may be required. For this reason, USC requires all students to have a comprehensive health insurance plan. Please note that the student health fee doesn’t pay for health insurance. Insurance is a separate cost.

For the Fall and Spring Semesters, the Student Health Center Fee is automatically added to your student account with the University:

  • All domestic students taking 6 units or more are automatically enrolled.
  • All international students and Health Sciences Campus students are automatically enrolled, even if they are taking less than 6 units.

For the Summer, all registered students are charged the health center fee, according to the number of weeks in their session. This applies to students in summer, regardless of the number of units they are registered in.
