Our goal is to enhance the health and well being of our students in support of their learning and success.

The Health and Wellness Center embraces a holistic approach to provide accessible, high quality health care. We practice and educate students on the right to health equity, social justice, human dignity and respect for all. We are providers of student centered services, providing professional excellence, responsiveness and ethical practice. We provide a multidisciplinary and collaborative approach to well health with active inclusion of student involvement.

ALL full-time undergraduate students taking 12 or more credit hours (4 units) and ALL full-time graduate students taking 9 or more credit hours are required to provide proof of health insurance effective in New York annually.              A copy of the student’s health and prescription insurance cards needs to be on file in the Center for Health and Wellness and kept up to date.

In order to opt out/ waive the First student health insurance provided by the College, you must apply to use your own insurance through the waiver portal  EIIA .  If your insurance is not accepted as equal to what we offer according to the Affordable Care Act, then you will be automatically enrolled in our policy, which will provide you with full comprehensive coverage during your stay in New York.

For new students in the 2020 Spring semester, the waiver opened December 12, 2019  and closed February 1, 2020  

Students having primary insurance may waive the mandatory Wagner College student health insurance by visiting the following link: www.eiia.org/institution/wagner-college (EIIA). This link also provides access to policy information, health insurance ID card, claim forms, and phone contact information. The Center for Health and Wellness offers all students use of our professional services including our Counseling staff.
