Health Care Fees

All USC students are automatically charged two health care fees upon enrolling. The first fee, the student health center fee, is mandatory and cannot be waived. This fee funds the Eric Cohen Student Health Center and allows all registered students at the health science campus to see providers and counselors free of charge. The second fee, the student health insurance fee, cannot be removed or reimbursed unless a waiver request is submitted and approved. Every USC student is required to have health insurance with benefits that meet or exceed the university health insurance plan, Aetna Student Health Insurance. If you would like to waive out of Aetna Student Health Insurance, please visit the enrolling & waiving page in this section. Dental and vision insurance are not required but are available to all USC students. Please see below for a breakdown of health care fees and quick reference guides.
