Co-Op Health Plan Opt-In

When a student is on co-op, they are not covered under the FSU Health Plan or the bus pass, as they have not paid their ancillary fees, which these services fall under. However, there is an option for co-op students to opt-in to the FSU Health Plan and/or bus pass for a fee.

  • Co-Op Health Plan Opt-In Fee - $115.00 (The student has 10 days from the beginning of their academic term to opt-in to this service)

When a co-op student pays the above fees, the student will have access to the FSU Health Plan and/or the bus pass for the period of their co-op term.

  • Fall Co-Op Opt-In - Covered from September 1st to December 31st
  • Winter Co-Op Opt-In - Covered from January 1st until August 31st

Students pay the fee to a maximum of two semesters per academic year. For more information, speak to reception in the FSU Office, SC2001.
