Summer Students

All registered Cornell students may use Cornell Health's medical services during the summer months, no matter what health insurance you have. Most students are also eligible for counseling services. Please see details below. (Our pharmacy is open to all, including members of the public.)

Eligible students include ...

  • Students enrolled in Summer Session

  • High school students participating in Cornell’s Summer College program

  • Undergraduate, graduate, and professional students remaining in Ithaca between enrolled semesters

  • Continuing Education students taking summer courses

NOTE: Sports Camp participants can receive short-term care and referrals for minor injuries and illnesses incurred on campus, but are not eligible for other Cornell Health services.

Restrictions & cost for care

During the summer, students who are covered by a Cornell's Student Health Plan (SHP) or the Student Health Fee may access medical and mental health services for a $10 visit copay. Those enrolled in the Student Health Plan Plus (SHP+) have no copay. See Cost for Service for complete details (and please check your plan's coverage dates). If you have any questions, refer to the Student Health Benefits website, or contact Student Health Benefits at 607-255-6363.

Those who are not covered by SHP, SHP+ or the health fee may still use our medical services. Please refer to our Insurance & Billing page for information about what insurance plans we participate with. These students are not eligible to receive counseling services. 

Phone consultation for urgent concerns

Any student with a medical or mental health concern may call us at 607-255-5155 for consultation with a health care provider (24/7 for urgent concerns). We can help you determine what care you need, and how and when to get it.
