Because the health, vitality, and welfare of its students and their dependents are of major concern to the University, Loma Linda University sponsors and funds the student health plan, a health care plan that provides health service and medical coverage to all eligible students. It includes the following benefits: student health service, 24-hour coverage, and generous coverage through preferred providers. The student health plan provides a broad range of medical coverage but does not provide dental or vision coverage. Visit the Student Health Services website for more information.
The following student organizations enable the student to participate in cultural, social, professional, and citizenship aspects of university life.
