Preserving the health and wellness of Teachers College students is paramount. With Columbia Health, we are working to support your health insurance and immunization needs.
Having health insurance is key to helping ensure predictable health care costs and to support students in the achievement of their personal and academic goals. In an effort to reinforce this aim, Teachers College requires most students to have comprehensive health insurance as part of enrollment in the College. The Columbia Student Health Insurance Plan, in partnership with Aetna Student Health, is available to all registered students enrolled in degree-granting programs.
Mandatory enrollment in the Student Health Insurance plan applies to students enrolled in 9+ billable credits and/or international students and/or residential students regardless of credit hours.
All incoming students must provide an official record of their Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) immunity and complete the Meningitis Response Form.
These regulations are in accordance with New York State Public Health Law 2165 and Teachers College policy.
