Information for Part-time Students

While registered part-time students (with the exception of distance learning, online only and continuing education students)are eligible to utilize Rutgers Health Services, coverage and payment options will vary based upon insurance. Part-time students do not pay the health fee.

The University strongly encourages all students to maintain adequate health insurance coverage at all times. Degree-seeking part-time students are eligible to enroll in the University-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan. Part-time students enrolled in this Plan may use it to file claims for visits to the Health Centers for medical and psychiatric services.
