Both full time (9 credits or more per semester) and part time graduate students will be able to access Health Center services.  Full time students are required to fill out the Grad Student Health information form, whether or not they plan to access services.  Failure to fill out this form will result in a registration hold until it is completed.  Part time students will not get a registration hold if they do not fill out the form, but it must be completed prior to accessing Health Center services. The Grad Student Health Information form only needs to be completed once during the student’s program.

Please note that payment of this fee enables students to be seen at Health Services. The fee covers services not billable to insurance including processing the Graduate Student Health Information Form and immunization requirements (the fee does not cover actual appointments, immunizations or other services rendered). Health Services is able to bill health insurance for services provided. Any applicable co-pays are to be paid at the time of the visit or paid in full if not covered by health insurance.  See Health Services web site for more details.


Payment of this fee ensures access to free short term counseling with one of the counselors in Counseling Services. See EMU Counseling Services web site for more details.

Withdraw and Tuition Refund Policies

When a student withdraws from a program, or changes enrollment to fewer credit hours, certain procedures must be followed and the student may be eligible for a partial refund of tuition payments.

Financial Aid recipients who change their course registration or withdraw after the beginning of each semester must notify the financial assistance office.

Enrollment status is very important to aid eligibility.  Financial aid refunds due to withdrawal are calculated using percentage of the term not completed as dictated by federal aid regulations.   More information about aid adjustments and refunds due to change in enrollment status, may be obtained from the Financial Assistance Office and the Lancaster coordinator of  student financial services.

Please see the graduate catalog for general academic information for all graduate programs: GRADUATE CATALOG or ask the Graduate Teacher Education office for a copy.
