Utica College is committed to the development of its students, both graduate and undergraduate, as they enter a world of interesting people, engaging ideas, and stimulating activities. In order to empower, challenge, and support students in achieving their goals, we are committed to providing academic support as well as opportunities to learn through co-curricular activities. At the same time, all Utica College students need to be aware of our expectations for student conduct, our community standards and related responsibilities, including a number of important policies and processes.
Academic resources and offices that are important to be aware of include:

- All full-time undergraduate students must carry health insurance. Utica College offers a health insurance plan for students who do not have alternate coverage which is charged to your account every semester. This charge varies semester to semester. Health insurance covers medical services not available at or through the Student Health Center. Full time students who already have alternate health insurance and do not want the student health insurance must complete an online waiver each year the student enrolls at Utica College. All international students and international visiting faculty are required to take the Utica College international health insurance plan. There is no waiver for this plan. Information on the student health insurance is available at the Student Health Center at (315) 792-3094 or visit the following link: http://www.utica.edu/finance/sfs/index.cfm.
The Student Wellness Center is located on the second floor of Strebel Center. The Student Wellness Center houses both the HEALTH and COUNSELING offices. When college is in session during the fall and spring semesters, all registered full and part time students are eligible to receive medical and counseling services at the Student Wellness Center. Service is free unless otherwise noted. All students must turn in a completed health form and immunization record.
