Health and Wellness

Empire State College Offers a Health and Wellness Initiative- Free for All Students

Your good health is critical to your academic success. Research has shown that adult students leave college for a variety of reasons, but one of the most significant is for personal and family health issues.

Our program is designed to address the needs of adults as they manage their physical, mental and emotional health during their time at the college. Our services include:

  • Student Health 101- A health and wellness e-magazine geared towards meeting the needs of today's Empire State College students
  • Student Wellness Assistance Program- A totally FREE service offered to all Empire State College students. Includes resources such as: telecounceling, articles, interactive self-assessments, financial assistance, and more
  • Talk One-2-One, a 24/7 telephone counseling service providing both telecounceling and legal/financial assistance
  • supplemental benefits- specifically for higher education
  • health insurance options- connections to the Offical Health Plan Marketplace
  • health and wellness programming- paid for by your student health fee, request a program today or check out what is currently going on!
