Health Fees and Eligibility

All full-time students are charged a Student Wellbeing Fee in the fall and spring semester, as well as winter session if enrolled in a class. The fee covers most service charges at Student Health Services, which also bills to insurance companies as an off-campus practice would. The fee also supports mental health services available to all students through our Center for Counseling and Student Development.

Those who are still current students but not presently enrolled can elect to pay a student wellbeing fee in winter and summer sessions. Part-time students as well as post docs and visiting scholars can also elect to pay a student wellbeing fee in any semester or session, or pay per service.  Allergy injection services and immunizations for University of Delaware travel are available to University of Delaware faculty and staff on a fee for service basis.

Student Health is in network with most Blue Cross, Aetna and Cigna insurance plans.
