Step 3. Health Insurance Waiver (if applicable)

Student Health Center and Health Insurance Fees

All Rensselaer students pay a health center fee that provides access to on-campus medical, counseling, and health education services. The Health Center does not charge insurance plans for health care services.

In addition, to ensure access to off-campus health care services, an annual health insurance fee is billed to all students. Our annual health insurance coverage has been carefully designed to reflect the needs of today’s active students. If you have equivalent coverage, our health insurance fee may be waived, but you will be required to pay the health center fee.

Health Insurance Waivers are completed on the Student Health Center Web Portal. This is one of the four mandatory forms you will complete on the portal. Waivers will be accepted until September 15. For more details see the Student Health Center website:

The Student Health Center

With the transition to college comes the opportunity — and the challenge — of managing your own health. Rensselaer has a comprehensive AAAHC-certified, physician-directed Student Health Center providing ambulatory health care for all enrolled students. Located right on campus, and within blocks of a 180-bed community hospital, the Student Health Center offers:

  • Daily appointments for confidential medical, psychological, allergy, gynecological, and other services.
  • Specialist referrals, hospital referrals, and pharmacy delivery services.
  • A specially designed health insurance plan.
  • Health education and wellness programs.

Rensselaer’s Student Health Center is one of 260 health centers nationwide that is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), a national organization. Accreditation affirms that our health center is committed to providing high-quality care by measuring up to AAAHC’s high standards.
