The Department of Student Services (RH, LC and WC) offers a variety of resources and programs to support students in their academic achievement, educational goals, personal growth, and professional development. These services advance overall student development and become an integral component of the educational process, with the ultimate goal of strengthening learning outcomes. Consistent with our Jesuit tradition and overall Student Affairs divisional mission, staff offering these services are committed to  responding to the full spectrum of diverse student needs and abilities. Students are encouraged to take advantage of these services and are actively engaged with administrators in the planning process, from the development of new programs discussed in small and informal focus groups, to formerly administered assessment free instruments. Students who have questions or problems with these services should feel free to contact the respective directors or the Dean of Student Services. Student Services departments include:

Office of the Dean of Student Services, Career Services, Experiential Education Program, Department of University Transportation, Disability Services for Students, Counseling and Psychological Services, University Health Services, Fordham University Emergency Medical Services, and Kaplan Test Prep and ETS Testing.

Fordham University is concerned about the health of our students and the high cost of medical care. We are also concerned about the increasing number of students attending college without the safety net of medical insurance and are therefore committed to providing an array of comprehensive health insurance services. All registered students, full and part-time graduate and undergraduate are automatically enrolled in a basic medical insurance policy covering accidents, while they are enrolled at the University. The maximum benefit per accident is $2,500.00. In addition, students have the option of obtaining various supplemental health insurance plans, covering illness and accident that may exceed the above limit. Information regarding supplemental health insurance plans can be accessed via Fordham University’s web site: and follow the link to Collegiate Insurance Resources, 172 Bechtel Road, Collegeville, PA 19426. Toll-free number 800-332-9901. Please contact Maritza Rivera, Health Insurance Compliance Administrator, at 718-817-4164 or at for further information.
