Pacific to offer expanded student health services for fall 2019

May 14, 2019

To ensure all students on Pacific's three campuses have access to appropriate care, and to meet the increased demand for services, the Division of Student Life will expand student health, counseling and psychological services this fall.

For the past several years, Pacific has required full-time students to pay a health fee that provides them access to a broad range of health and counseling services. Starting this fall, Pacific is extending the student health fee, along with the services that go along with it, to all part-time students except those enrolled in online or hybrid programs. This change will now enable our part-time students to have access to the current and expanded health services provided to our full-time students. Some of these services will include:
