Any UMF student who is enrolled for at least 3 credits may use the UMF Student Health Center.

How can I use the Student Health Center?
To see the Registered Nurse for colds and other acute illness and injuries, simply walk in and be seen on a first come / first served basis. Nurse Practitioner (NP) and Dietitian visits are by appointment. Please call in advance to schedule pap smears, physical exams for sports or employment, nutrition consultation or general health evaluations.


Student Health Insurance

Change in health insurance offering to the Student Health Insurance Program — health insurance is no longer required to attend UMF.

A new change in the health insurance verification requirement for students enrolled at UMF will take effect on August 1, 2021.

This UMaine System webpage outlines student options for accessing health insurance coverage and information about free wellbeing resources for those students who are not already covered under another plan.

Although health insurance is no longer required to attend UMF, affordable health insurance is available. We strongly encourage students to acquire health insurance coverage that meets their individual needs. There are cost-effective options available for many students, including expanded eligibility for income-based premium subsidies.
