As a CU Boulder student you have access to a full range of health and wellness services located conveniently on campus.
With nearly 100 licensed health care professionals on staff, we focus on enabling student success through comprehensive care and education.
All students are required to have health insurance during their time at CU Boulder. You can elect coverage under your own insurance plan, through a family member or employer, or the university’s Student Gold Health Insurance Plan.
Once you are registered for six or more undergraduate credit hours or one or more graduate credit hours, you will be automatically enrolled in the Student Gold Health Insurance Plan and charged $1,889.50 per semester.
You can select the Campus Care Supplement or waive the Gold Plan by providing proof of health insurance coverage by the semester deadline of February 3, 2017.
Please Note: You must be registered for at least six undergraduate credit hours or one graduate credit hour before you can make your selection.
