Who is eligible for health services at the University of Toronto?
- Full-time and part-time University of Toronto undergraduate and graduate students who have paid the appropriate incidental fees
- Toronto School of Theology students at Emmanuel College in the conjoint full-time basic degree program (undergraduate)
- Students in the School of Continuing Studies English Language Program identified by a student card*
Eligible students typically have access to the services for the current academic year, i.e. from September 1 to August 31 of the following year. Eligibility for services continues to the end of August. This means that students are still eligible during summer months when they are not enrolled in classes or are graduating.
*Students in the School of Continuing Studies (SCS) English Language Program have access to the services for the duration of their course (4 weeks to 12 weeks) while their health insurance coverage is valid. Visit the SCS Health insurance and services page for more information.
In addition, when accessing our services, eligible students must also provide proof of valid health insurance coverage. Examples of health insurance coverage are OHIP, other provincial health insurance plans, or the University Health insurance Plan (UHIP). Students must bring their student card (TCard) and proof of valid health insurance coverage when booking an appointment or checking in for an appointment.
Students who are new to University of Toronto but require service when they arrive in August (before classes start) will be asked show proof of tuition payment or registration.
Who is not eligible for services?
- Post-doctoral fellows
- Spouse or common-law partner of a student
- Children (under 18 years old) of a student
- Toronto School of Theology students in the advance degree program
- Students located outside of Ontario (our physicians and clinical staff are only licensed to practice in Ontario, including virtual care). If you need support while you are outside of Ontario, you are eligible for mental health services through My SSP.
Graduate students who are on suspension or leave may be granted limited access, on a case-by-case basis by consultation with a clinician. Please contact us to discuss.
