Eligibility and Covered Services

Eligibility for services at UChicago Student Wellness is based on a student being actively enrolled in an eligible program of study; eligibility is not based on whether a student is on U-SHIP. Most degree programs that convene full-time on the Hyde Park campus are eligible.

However, students who are enrolled in the following programs are not eligible for services at UChicago Student Wellness:

  • Booth Evening, Weekend, and Executive Programs
  • SSA Evening Program
  • Harris Part-Time/Evening/Weekend Programs
  • Master of Liberal Arts Program
  • Master of Science in Analytics Program (part-time or online)
  • Master of Science in Biomedical Informatics Program
  • Extended Residence
  • Exchange students

In addition, students in certain registration statuses (e.g., Study Abroad, Pro Forma) are not eligible. For questions about whether your program is eligible, please contact your dean of students or call UChicago Student Wellness at 773-834-WELL (773.834.9355).

Students not registered in courses during Summer Quarter but who remain active in an eligible program (meaning students who have not graduated, are not on a leave of absence*, and who are expected to continue their studies in the Autumn Quarter) are able to access UChicago Student Wellness during the summer. *Students on a Medical Leave of Absence who are enrolled in U-SHIP remain eligible for UChicago Student Wellness, per University policy (for more information, visit the Student Manual).

The table below lists UChicago Student Wellness services that are covered, at no cost, for eligible students. Items not covered are the responsibility of the student or the student’s health insurance provider. If you have questions about the costs of care, please ask any of our staff members. When referred by your UChicago Student Wellness service provider for other services, be sure to confirm whether those services will incur charges. Covered services must be performed within UChicago Student Wellness by our clinical staff. Please check with your insurance representative to confirm coverage prior to your visit or procedure. It is the student’s responsibility to understand the terms of their health insurance coverage; our staff are not able to advise on specific health insurance plans. Students on U-SHIP can consult with the on-campus insurance staff. For more information, review our education material on costs and options for care outside UChicago Student Wellness.
