Below is a list of all the topics on which you can find information on policies and procedures. The Policies and Procedures page is in the process of being updated. For questions about information not contained below, contact the Dean of Students Office at lawdos@umn.edu.

Health & Medical Services

See Boynton Health Service

All Law School students who take 6 or more credits (or 3 credits during Summer Session) must pay the student services fee (SSF). By paying the fee, you become eligible to receive most outpatient services at Boynton Health Service at no additional charge, and other health services at reduced cost. For information on what SSF covers see the Boynton Health Services website:



Students who have private insurance may opt out of the University-sponsored coverage. To opt out through a waiver, you must provide your current insurance coverage information by logging on to http://onestop.umn.edu/, clicking on “Health plan coverage,” and then following the prompts. If you have private insurance and you do not provide the required information, you will be charged for University-sponsored coverage.

If you waive the plan, note that the waiver lasts for two years. If your coverage changes within that two-year waiver period (e.g. you age out of dependent coverage on a parent’s plan), you must contact the Office of Student Health Benefits within 31 days in order to be eligible for University Coverage. You must verify that your health insurance coverage information is accurate before the start of each semester.


Immunization Clearance

Minnesota law requires all students born after December 31, 1956, to provide documentation of immunization for measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus, and diphtheria. All students are legally required to provide information on immunizations or exemptions. Students who fail to provide the required information will have a hold placed on their records and will not be allowed to register for classes. (The law does allow for an exception based on age, or documented medical or conscientious exemptions.) If you need any of the required immunizations, call your family doctor or the Boynton Immunizations Clinic (625-3222) for an appointment. Boynton Health Service does charge a fee for these required immunizations.
