The Plan was developed to help College of the Rockies students pay for the health services they need, the COTR Students' Association has partnered with Studentcare in order to provide students with extended health and dental coverage.  

The new Health & Dental Plan is designed specifically for students to cover many services not covered by BC MSP and other basic health care programs

Who's Covered?

College of the Rockies students who meet the following criteria will be automatically covered by the Plan:

  • You are a full-time student in the Fall Semester (registered in 9 credit hours or more) AND

  • Your 9 credits must on campus and last at least 9 weeks

  • You will not be automatically covered if your courses are online (e.g.  ENGL 100 - OL01)


Most English Language Program (ELP) students taking 2 or more courses in the Fall semester are automatically covered by the Plan. International students should verify their account to see if they have been assessed the Plan fee.

Covered by another Plan?

You can opt our of the COTRSA Plan and receive a cheque for the Plan fee if you have equivalent health and dental coverage - typically a group benefits plan provided through your employer, or your parent's or spouse's employer.  Visit studentcare during the approprate Change-of-Coverage Period and follow the on-screen instructions for opt outs.
