Graduate, Post-Graduate & Professional Students

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.

Campus Health Fee

Most degree-seeking graduate and post-graduate students automatically pay the University's Campus Health 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.

Patient Portal

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.

Immunization Compliance

The Health Center offers all required immunizations and the TB skin test. However, we recommend you receive the required vaccines and TB testing before you arrive at Tulane.

Health Insurance Coverage

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 have their health insurance verified using our online system or purchase the Tulane-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan (T-SHIP) by the posted deadline.

Contact your health insurance carrier regarding your coverage while in college. Your plan must provide equivalent coverage to the Tulane-sponsored plan that offers full access to providers in the New Orleans area including mental health services on a non-urgent as well as urgent basis.

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.

Visits to the Health Center

The Health Center is an appointment-based clinic offering primary care and preventive health care services. You can make an appointment online through the Patient Portal or by phone.

All visits to the Health Center require the collection of co-pays, co-insurances, or deductibles. For each visit to the Health Center, please bring your (1) Tulane Splash Card, (2) insurance card, (3) driver's license or state ID, and (4) form of payment/credit card. Learn more about medical billing.
