How do I enroll?
Enrollment is a simple process which requires you to complete a CEC Form (Client Eligibility Certification). Enrollment will occur the same day as your current scheduled appointment (must arrive 30 minutes prior). The early arrival will allow staff to complete the enrollment process, check-in process and answer any questions you may have in regards to the program. Please bring the completed CEC form with you to your scheduled appointment; you may use these 15 Quick Tips to assist you.
What if I already have a card?
If you already have a card and did not receive it at the Student Health and Counseling Center, be sure to inform the front office staff so we may verify the expiration date on your current card. We encourage you go complete a new CEC form in the event that your card may require re-certification.
