Fees & Insurance Overview

Your Health Care Options

However, we strongly urge every student to maintain adequate health insurance to cover unexpected medical expenses. Arizona Online, Southern Arizona & Distance Learner Students can opt-in for the Health portion of the UA Health & Recreation fee to access care at Campus Health or enroll for the available healthcare options. We've broken down all of the options available to you below.
