Health & Wellness Support Fee
($285.50 per semester) continues to be required for all students during the 2020-2021 academic year. The Rice Counseling Center (RCC), Wellbeing Office, Student Health Services (SHS) and SAFE office staff will continue to provide supportive services to students who need them throughout the semester. For students within the continental U.S., this includes access to telemed services through the RCC and SHS. In addition, please note that RCC has a referral specialist who can help any student, regardless of location, find a local provider if they will be studying remote this spring. Allison Vogt
