Campus Health staff is dedicated to encouraging and maintaining the health of all students. For graduate students, we have a downtown location in Elks Place for easier access if you are primarily based on the Downtown Campus. However, you may use the services at any location of your choice.
Most degree-seeking graduate students automatically pay the Student Health and Wellness Fee which provides access to services provide by Campus Health. If for some reason you are not assessed this fee, you will need to pay the fee each semester to access services at any of our locations. Learn more about fees and access to services.
Manage your health, immunization and physical exam forms on the Patient Portal. All students should utilize the Patient Portal to upload their immunizations prior to arrival at Tulane and complete an online health history. These tools will help improve your experience as a student and allow us to provide more comprehensive care. If you have any specific chronic health care needs, please contact our nursing staff for assistance to assure we are prepared for your arrival.
The Health Center offers all required immunizations and the TB skin test. However, we recommend you receive required vaccines and TB testing before you arrive at Tulane.
All degree-seeking Tulane University students are required to carry health insurance coverage equal to or greater than the university requirements. Each year, degree-seeking students must either enroll in the Tulane-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan (T-SHIP) or waive enrollment in this plan by providing proof of other comparable coverage by the posted deadline.
You should contact your health insurance carrier regarding your coverage while in college. Your plan must provide equivalent coverage to the Tulane-sponsored plan. This means that you have full access to providers in the New Orleans area including mental health services on a non-urgent as well as urgent basis. Check your existing plan to ensure providers are available in our area.
International students are required to enroll in T-SHIP unless they have U.S. based insurance that meets the same requirements as that of U.S. insurance plans. See the university health insurance requirements for further clarification.
Please notify The Health Center of any changes in your health insurance coverage. Also, be sure to carry a copy of your insurance card with you.
