SOLEX College has formed a partnership with ISO, a reputable health insurance provider and member of AIG Companies, who can meet your health insurance needs while you are in school.  Individual and family plans are available with a range of coverage and prices.

For more information, talk to your admissions representative or visit ISO's website.

While SOLEX limits provision of student services outside the classroom to admission and academic advising, it maintains a list of contacts with state and local service providers to which a student can be referred. This includes referral to various government offices, legal services and rehabilitation services.
