New Student Resources

October 18, 2023

All incoming students are required to complete the entrance health forms by July 31, 2023

Hello, new and prospective students! We're excited to welcome you to the Caltech community.

Learn about services and meet our staff!

All registered students pay a health fee each term, which allows access to Student Wellness Services for FREE, regardless of your insurance coverage.

All students are required to carry health insurance, which is used for prescriptions, laboratory tests, specialty/urgent/emergency care, and other services. There may be costs involved if a student requires medication, labs, or other testing, but seeing a Caltech clinician on campus is FREE.

An occupational therapist offers guidance by:

  • Creating beneficial habits and routines
  • Implementing data-driven strategies to meet your goals
  • Setting realistic goals

A counselor, on the other hand, can help you:

  • Learn how to cope with stressful situations and difficult emotions
  • Become more flexible and responsive in how you see yourself and others
  • Understand yourself better

What we have in common:

  • Individualized and client-centered
  • Scientifically driven, evidence-based
  • Defined goals

Remember, you are not limited to one therapy or the other. You may utilize both services to address the same problem as the different frameworks and methodologies of each profession can complement each other. We encourage students to take advantage of all the resources Caltech has to offer!
