Part-Time, Distance Learning & SoPA Students

Access to Campus Health 

Tulane students who are enrolled as part-time (less than 12 credit hours), Distance Learning or Professional Advancement typically are not assessed the Student Health & Wellness Fee and must pay the semester fee in order to have access to services provided by Campus Health.

Health Insurance

Students who are enrolled as non-degree-seeking (less than 3 hours) or Distance Learning are not eligible to participate in the Tulane-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan (T-SHIP). These students will not be enrolled in T-SHIP unless they have completed their registration process with the registrar's office and have met minimum eligibility requirements.

Please note: All degree-seeking Tulane University students — including Dissertation and Research Assistants — 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.

If you are unsure of your eligibility, please contact the Student Health Insurance Office.
