Enrolled Brooklyn College undergraduate and graduate students are entitled to free, unlimited visits to the Brooklyn College Health Clinic.
Cost and Fees
There are modest fees for prescription medication, some immunizations, and off-site laboratory tests (see fee schedule). The Health Clinic is funded primarily through the student activity fee (SAF). For 15 years, the rate remained at $10 per student per semester. However, thanks to a second referendum held in 2009, CLAS and GSO contribution for health services is $20.
The Brooklyn College Health Clinic does not provide pharmacy services. Prescriptions from other practitioners will not be filled.
While efforts are made to keep the fee schedule current, costs listed below are subject to change without prior notice.
