The New School

2018-2019 Academic Year

All degree, diploma, online only, visiting, mobility (study abroad), Maintenance of Status, Lang and Parsons consortium, graduate certificate program, ESL + Certificate Program and both graduate and undergraduate degree program non-matriculating students are automatically charged a Student Health Services Fee and a Health Insurance Fee.

The Student Health Services Fee ($370 per semester) enables students to use Student Health Services. Students have unlimited access to Medical Services (most services are offered at no additional charge), short-term Counseling Services, unlimited access to health information and referrals from a Health Educator, as well as interactive programs on a variety of health, wellness, and safety topics.

The Health Insurance Fee is the insurance premium for coverage under The New School Student Health Insurance plan, administered by Aetna Student Health. The student health insurance plan enables students to use services outside Student Health Services. Depending on course load and status, you may be eligible to decline these services by submitting a completed Online Waiver Form by the posted Waiver Deadline Date.

The 2018-2019 Plan Summary will be available on the left hand side of this page under “Benefit Information” in early summer 2018. It describes services, insurance coverage and limitations, procedures to waive, and important deadlines. It is your responsibility to understand the nature and scope of benefits and limitations as well as to abide by posted deadlines.

Health care is expensive. If you plan to waive participation in the Student Health Insurance Plan, be sure your plan covers care in New York City. The New School strongly encourages you to consider remaining enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan.
