Health Services: Student Health Fees

All currently enrolled students are eligible and welcome to be seen for a wide range of health and wellness services. Every student is charged a health fee at the time of registration that covers most services offered. This fee is not a replacement for personal health insurance. Modest additional fees are charged dependent on individual student needs.

The current fee is $19 per semester/$16 per summer session.

This fee supports Student Health Services, which provides care for on-campus injuries, illness, a self-help medication center, health education, health assessment, advice, information/referral, and personal counseling.

If a student is enrolled at both West Valley College and Mission College, then the health fee need only be paid at one of the two. A valid receipt showing proof of payment at Mission will allow West Valley to waive the fee and vice versa.

Students who may be exempted from the health fee include:

  • Students who depend exclusively upon prayer for healing in accordance with the teachings of a bona fide religious sect, denomination, or organization
  • Students who are attending a community college under an approved apprenticeship training program (Ed Code Section 76355.)
  • Any student who either requests an exemption of the health fee, or is determined by a Student Services program to warrant review for exemption, will be referred to the Financial Aid Director and at least one Financial Aid supervisor/technician who will review requests on a case by case basis.
