Health Insurance

Required for residence hall students, recommended for everyone else.  Visit our Insurance page for health insurance options.  A health insurance enrollment facilitator is available by appointment at the Health & Wellness Center on campus to help un-insured students and those with out-of-area health plans to apply for an affordable, or free, NYS health insurance plan.  Additionally, a health insurance enrollment navigator will be available on move-in day for residence hall students.

Health Insurance Card

So, you’re really sick and need to go to the local Urgent Care.  Do you have a Health Insurance card?  Remember to get one of your own - you’ll need it to seek medical care and to get prescriptions filled. 

CARES (Concern, Attention, Respect for Every Student)

Everyone struggles sometimes with school, work, family, finances, and more.  As a College we are committed to helping those who need it - it's what we do to help you succeed.  One tool we have is our CARES team - a group of dedicated faculty and staff that can help any student in their time of need.  Whether we make a referral to an on or off campus resource, we will follow-up and make sure you have been helped. 

Our goals are to:

  • Provide outreach, support and initiate appropriate interventions to students in distress;
  • Develop strategies to assist struggling students utilize campus, community and family resources;
  • Improve student success.

If you are ever in need or feel one of your fellow students needs assistance, please contact a faculty or staff member for assistance or complete the Reporting an Incident form.
