Wellness Fee Information

At the Center for Health and Well-Being, we specialize in college health. That means the services are not limited to traditional models of health care that have emphasized the treatment of an individual’s illness. We also work to ensure a healthy campus community.

It’s important and expected, that IUP will provide support, services, and programs that affect not only individual students’ health, but the broader campus community as well.  That’s why we address prevention and early intervention of concerns like sexual violence, alcohol and other drug use, stress, eating disorders, anxiety, and depression. While not every student may be affected, most will be indirectly impacted by the consequences of such problems.

The fees also support the work needed to meet state and federal regulations related to college health concerns that may be required of the university. This is important because doing so can impact state and national standing of the university programs.

Wellness Fee 

This is a mandatory fee of $14 per credit taken by the student. It is charged in the fall and spring semesters. It is used to provide services and programs that promote the well-being of students. The fee supports the services of the Center for Health and Well-Being, Disability Services, and Sports Medicine. The Center for Health and Well-Being services include:

Students who pay this fee have full access to all the services offered through the Center for Health and Well-Being. Students from other campuses may choose to pay this fee and receive care on the Indiana campus.

At times, additional charges may be necessary. Any additional charges will be billed to the student account. The Center for Health and Well-Being accepts no payments on-site.

  • Some services offered in the Health Service may have additional costs. Visit the IUP Health Service for a listing of these charges. Medicines are not included in any wellness fee.
  • Some services provided by Recreation also have a fee.
  • Services offered as a sanction for violating the university’s alcohol or drug policy require an additional fee.

What if I am not a student on the Indiana campus?

If you attend all of your classes on another campus, you will not be charged this fee. If you want to use the services offered at the Center for Health and Well-Being’s Health Service or Counseling Center, you can call 724 357-1358 or e-mail to learn more about related costs.

What if I want to purchase health insurance through Consolidated Health Insurance?

Eligibility for the student Consolidated Health Insurance plan requires that a student be an enrolled graduate student (one or more credits) or an enrolled undergraduate student (six or more credits), and must pay the Wellness Fee.

Can I waive this fee?

No, however, if a student is commuting daily from his/her primary residence to the Indiana campus at a distance of 50 miles or more one way, or if the student is commuting at least 25 miles one way from the Indiana campus to a full-time academic assignment, a reduction may be requested.  For information on waiving this fee, contact the Bursar’s Office.
