Miscellaneous

Activities Fee (mandatory)

Full-time and part-time students registering for credit courses pay an Activities Fee which supports Student Government, Student Clubs and Organizations and Athletics at Herkimer. The fee entitles students to attend activities sponsored by the Faculty Student Association and free use of the shuttle bus. The Activities Fee is waived for students with a course load of strictly internet courses.

Technology Fee (mandatory)

The technology fee provides computer network access including Internet and an email account.

Student Accident Insurance (optional)

An accident insurance policy covering medical payments from accidents up to a maximum of $5,000 is available for the welfare of the students. This insurance plan covers students for twelve months of the year, twenty-four hours a day. The current premium cost is $50 per year. Student athletes must purchase this coverage. All full-time students are encouraged to participate in this plan unless their families have adequate accident coverage. Coverage is available only for full-time students enrolled for classes on-campus. Coverage is not available for students enrolled completely online. Claims involving the accident insurance should be reported immediately to the College Bursar’s Office.

International Health Insurance

HTH Worldwide is contracted by SUNY to provide health insurance to you while in the United States and abroad. Benefits are subject to change. Please go directly to the HTH Worldwide website for current insurance plan details.

All F-1 international students and scholars are required by SUNY to have health insurance for the duration of your stay at Herkimer College. Unless you have provided the Bursar’s Office with proof of your own coverage that is comparable to HTH Worldwide, the premium which is currently $550 per semester, will automatically be added to your bill.

It is necessary to have health insurance because the cost of health care services here in the United States is very high. If you require medical attention, it is important you are able to receive the proper attention without accumulating a large amount of out of pocket expenses.

Parking

Parking rules and regulations are enforced on campus by Campus Safety. Parking fines range from $10 to $35 and must be paid within ten days of receipt of the ticket or they increase. Fines are payable at the Bursar’s Office. An appeal may be filed after the fine has been paid.

There is no fee for parking on campus, but all students are required to register their vehicles with Campus Safety. Parking permits, which are also free, are available at the College Bookstore for students who commute. For students who reside in the College Foundation owned apartments, there is an $80 parking fee per year; $50 for spring semester only.

Returned Check Fee

Any student issuing a check that is returned for insufficient funds will be charged an additional $25 fee.
