Student Health Services are provided to students through their tuition fees and, in most instances, are offered free of charge. On occasion, it may be 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 services.

Although RMC does not offer student health insurance, we strongly encourage students to carry personal health coverage.
