Good health is important to your academic success. The CSU Health Network is your home for integrated health care while you’re at CSU. Services include primary medical care, counseling, psychiatry, physical therapy, optometry, dental and more. 

By paying student fees, you pay to use the CSU Health Network. These fees provide unlimited primary care and psychiatry visits and up to five individual/couples counseling sessions per semester at no extra charge. They subsidize areas such as lab, radiology and pharmacy, allowing services to be provided at lower costs. Students taking fewer than six credits have the option to pay the student health and counseling fees.
