Students who participate in school sponsored trips may pay with a check or credit card by mail or during office hours. Payment for trips can not be made through the payment portal on Lesesne Gateway. Because trip costs are not regular school expenses, they will not be reflected in the student’s account. In case of trip cancellation, refunds are coordinated by the academic departments.
U. S. Health Insurance
Cadets are required to carry student health insurance for all semesters they are present on campus. Proof of insurance is required for admission, readmission, and continuation as a cadet. Cadets must notify the Infirmary immediately of any changes in insurance providers or coverage. Adequate insurance coverage for hospitalization, emergency care, ambulance transportation, specialty medical and surgical care is mandatory.
Many cadets are covered under parental medical insurance plans. For military families covered by TRICARE, cadets must be enrolled under TRICARE STANDARD (not PRIME) unless the family lives in the Charleston area. This allows cadets to skip evaluation and referral by the Primary Care Manager (at home base) for supplemental medical services in Charleston.
Individual student health insurance is also available through commercial companies. Cadets are eligible for the South Carolina Statewide Student Health Insurance Plan, which provides low-cost insurance for students at seven participating colleges in South Carolina.
