Columbia Health is an integrated program that provides extensive on-campus health care and services for you while you are enrolled at the University. Columbia Health and an accepted medical insurance plan work together to meet your health care needs. Columbia requires all full-time students to enroll in both. To meet the insurance requirement, you must either confirm your enrollment in the Columbia Student Health Insurance Plan (Columbia Plan) or provide proof of alternate coverage that meets the established criteria listed on the Columbia Health website. International students are required to enroll in the Columbia Student Health Insurance Plan. Part-time students may also enroll in Columbia Health and the Columbia Plan.
