Billing for Counseling Services

Beginning August 2011, the Student Center for Health and Counseling (SCHC) will begin billing for services provided including counseling and mental health services. While charges for health services have been billed for the over 25 years, counseling has not been billed.

Students will be required to carry health insurance.  The following insurance companies are on the list of those that can be billed through the SCHC: BCBS, Medica, Preferred One, Health Partners, StudentResources/Student Insurance, Prime West, UCare, and MNCare. Any charges not covered by insurance will be the responsibility of the student incurring the charge. There is also an optional plan available through the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities called Student Resources/Student Insurance. Information about this optional policy is available at the SCHC or accessed on line at The intent of the required coverage policy is to allow the students to continue to have affordable health care.  Students can sign up for the MNSCU plan by completing a form available at the SCHC or the Cashiers office and paying the fee at the cashier’s office.

Also new this year, first year students will complete the required Responsible Men Responsible Women program through D2L.  Faculty academic advisors please note, students who have not completed the online RMRW program by October 1, 2011, will have a registration hold that will prevent them from registering for Spring semester classes.   For questions about RMRW contact Jay Passa at
