Student Health Services Fees

The WPI health fee that all undergraduate students pay covers all services directly available at Student Health Services. Students are responsible for the cost of laboratory tests, x-rays, prescription medications, and expenses incurred when referred to an off-campus physician or hospital.

Graduate students are not required to pay the health fee since many already have and are using health services of their own choosing. If you are a graduate student and require health services, we encourage you to make an appointment to speak with a health insurance provider. We will typically see graduate students one time free of charge, but subsequent visits and follow-up appointments would necessitate paying the health fee as undergraduate students do.
