Health and Counseling Fee (HCF)

The Health and Counseling Fee covers many services provided at the HCC; please view the information and details below for a detailed description of the discounted and free benefits. All students enrolled for six or more (eight for law students) hours of graded credit in a traditional program are automatically charged the HCF each quarter or semester (for law students) Students enrolled for fewer than six hours of credit must contact the HCC to enroll since the HCF is not automatically assessed on the tuition bill.

The DU Health and Counseling Fee is ONLY available for students enrolled in a traditional program with classes hosted on campus. Home study, correspondence, and online courses do not fulfill the eligibility requirements.
