Health Insurance

Due to regulatory issues with the state of New Mexico, the Santa Fe campus is unable to provide health insurance coverage for U.S. students. The Affordable Care Act requires that all U.S. citizens have health insurance and it is the policy of the college that all students must show proof of that insurance prior to registration. If you already have health insurance, you will need to submit your policy information via the web portal administered by our insurance broker, RCMD. If you do not already have health insurance, the Student Health Office can assist with enrollment in the New Mexico Health Exchange, at For more information contact the Student Health Office.

International students are required to have health insurance and a plan is in place that provides acceptable coverage. The insurance premium is added to the students account prior to registration. The Student Health Office can answer any questions you have about coverage, limits and cost.

Student Health Fee

As the Student Health Office is committed to providing care to all students, no matter what their insurance policy, the clinic requires no out-of-pocket expenses. In order to cover those expenses, the college charges a Student Health Fee of $250 per semester for all undergraduate students. This charge will be part of tuition and fees added to each students account prior to registration. Please contact the Student Health Office with any questions or concerns.
