NOTICE TO CAL STATE LA STUDENTS: Proposed Student Health Center Fee Increase
Why is a fee increase and indexing for the Health Center Fee being proposed?
- The Student Health Center is currently in a deficit (costs greater than revenues collected) of over $1.7 million.
- The SHC is a self-supporting entity with its primary source of revenue being the Student Health Services Fee (not part of tuition).
- The last Student Health Services Fee increase was in 2006 and the fee was not indexed to adjust for the rising costs of health services and pharmaceuticals.
- Per the Health Center website, failure to increase the fee would cause dire budgetary cuts, resulting in a substantial reduction of critical services to students, including mental health care.
What would a fee increase and indexing of the SHC mean?
- The proposed adjustment includes increasing the fee from $82.50 to $132.50 per semester, effective Fall 2018.
- Indexing the fee would permit incremental adjustments as needed per the increasing cost of healthcare in the future, without further consultation with students.
How Can I Make My Opinion Heard?
- Contact your ASI student representatives.
- Attend the Board of Directors meeting on Thursday, November 30th, 2017 where we will be taking action on our stance for this fee.
- Email the SHC at and let them know what you think.
