Wellness is an essential part of the student experience at The Chicago School. TCSPP promotes a learning environment supportive of the development and maintenance of a healthy mind, body, and spirit. We want our students to choose and exhibit behaviors that promote health, reduce risk, and strengthen relationships.
Through our wellness site, we aim to empower students to balance and explore what wellness means to them. We believe wellness is an active and ongoing exploration of self with a goal of creating a healthy, fulfilling life and increasing success in school and beyond.
TCSPP requires international students and scholars on F-1 and J-1 visas to carry health insurance for themselves and their F-2 and J-2 dependents. International students are required to purchase a health insurance plan from a school-designated carrier or show proof of comparable insurance to waive out of the school-designated plan. Information on student health insurance for international students (on an F-1 or J-1 visa) is available under International Insurance.
Please note that The Chicago School does not currently offer a student health insurance policy for domestic students. Students are encouraged to carry an individual health insurance plan while enrolled at The Chicago School. Visit healthcare.gov to access individual plans through your state health insurance exchange. Resources like GoHealth can also help you review and select an individual health insurance plan.
