Georgia Tech is strongly invested in helping everyone in its community remain safe and healthy, and is committed to providing resources to students who need them. Georgia Tech believes wellbeing is an essential piece of the human condition. Please find information below about health services and resources:
All F-1 and J-1 students are required to have health insurance for the duration of their time at Georgia Tech. All international students will be enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) mandated by the University System of Georgia. For more information, see the Stamps Heath Center insurance website.
It is highly recommended that you obtain all required immunizations before arriving at Georgia Tech. For information about required immunizations and how to provide documentation to Georgia Tech, please see the Stamps Health Center websites about Immunization Requirements and Immunization FAQs.
A variety of health services are available on campus to Georgia Tech students and their spouses/domestic partners. The student health fee allows students to access services at Stamps Health Services. Spouses of students can be treated at Stamps Health Services if they pay the Health Fee, but children can not be treated at Stamps Health Services.
Note: The student health fee is not health insurance; health insurance is a separate, mandatory expense.
