The Student Health Center is conveniently located on the La Verne campus and is staffed by a university-employed medical doctor who provides services for acute and chronic medical concerns. In addition, we have registered nurses and a medical assistant available to assist you and an on-site pharmacy that meets the needs of most students. There is no out of pocket charges for services rendered through Student Health Services or for prescription medications available through our pharmacy. For a full list of services, please click here.
Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan
Health and wellness are an important component for academic success at the University of La Verne. All full-time, traditional-aged undergraduates (12 or more credit hours per semester) and graduate international students (3 or more credit hours) are automatically enrolled in our University Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP). All others taking a minimum of 6 units on our main campuses are eligible to purchase the insurance at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters. Please contact student accounts if interested in purchasing.
SHIP is required for all full time, traditional-aged undergraduates and graduate international students. If a student drops below full-time status, coverage is not provided automatically. If a student is eligible and interested in the plan, it can be purchased separately by the student through the university. Please contact Student Accounts for more information.
All other eligible semester/term-based students who wish to purchase SHIP must do so prior to the last day of the Add/Drop period for each semester or term. CAPA students who are not enrolled in the first session of each term must wait until the next term to purchase the SHIP, if eligible to purchase.
It is the student’s responsibility to purchase the insurance by the Add/Drop period and no reminders are sent to do so. Please contact the Student Health Center at (909) 448-4619 for further information, clarification or questions.
