2018 Health Fee Adjustment Consultation Process

Humboldt State University students are facing a healthcare shortage on campus and we have a responsibility to fix it – wait times are increasing and there is insufficient capacity to meet student needs. Most students will use medical, counseling, or health education services during their time at HSU, and a healthier campus has a positive effect on the success of every student. With limited community resources, HSU’s on-campus Health and Wellbeing Services are the only resource for many students.

You may wish to take a look at the relevant information on this site including the data on increasing student needs, the additional services that can be provided by adjusting the fee, cost factors unique to our region, answers to frequently ask questions, and any other information you would like, and then share your thoughts about your priorities.
