Cost

Student Health Services is a provided to students through their tuition fees and in most instances are offered free of charge. On occasion, it is necessary for a student to be sent off-campus for an exam, lab, x-ray or referral to a specialist. It will be the financial responsibility of the student to file with their health insurance or otherwise arrange for payment for outside exams and other services.

Although RMC does not offer Student Health Insurance , we strongly encourage students to carry personal health coverage.
