eligibility for services

Eligibility

Eligibility for Student Health Center services is governed by California State University (CSU) Executive Orders 943 and 1053. These orders set the parameters under which all CSU campuses provide medical and mental health services.

Mandatory Health Fee and Current Enrollment

Registration fees for all CSU students include mandatory health fees (MHF) that support the provision of medical and mental health services. These fees, along with current enrollment, confer eligibility for use of campus health services.

The Cal State L.A. MHF enables the Student Health Center to provide eligible students a wide range of health services, many at no additional cost. Services with additional fees are provided at the lowest possible cost without compromising quality health care.

Students enrolled at one CSU campus are eligible for basic health services provided by other CSU student health centers. Proof of current enrollment must be shown before receiving services.
