Waiving Student Legal Services and Well Being Fees

Most students are automatically enrolled in two service plans. If you do not want to pay the fees for these plans, you must waive them before Friday, Feb 2.

Well Being Plan ($60 fee per semester)

  • Free counseling sessions
  • No co-pay at Campus Care—save $15 each time you visit the doctor.

Student Legal Services Fee ($12 fee per semester)

  • Lawyers provide students with legal representation, advice, and education.

Benefits of the Plans

Both the Well Being Plan and the Student Legal Services Plan offer important benefits to students. The Well Being Plan is helpful if you feel sad and need to see a counselor, or if you want to save money at Campus Care. The Student Legal Services Plan is helpful if you have any legal problems. For example, if you are in a car accident or have a disagreement about housing with your landlord, you might need legal help. You may want to keep these plans on your account, since they are not very costly. However, if you decide you want to waive these fees, here are the instructions:

Instructions for Waiving the Fees

  • Sign in to My Ohio.
  • On the Accounts tab, click My OHIO Student Center.
  • In the Finances section, click Waive WellBeing Plan OR Waive Student Legal Services.
  • Follow the instructions to complete the waiver.
  • Wait for the confirmation receipt to appear; print it for your records.

If you need help waiving these fees, you can attend the Workshop to Waive Fees or go to see Andrea Johannes in Gordy 155.
