Gnomon Workshop Subscription
Program students at Gnomon are provided with full-access subscriptions to the Gnomon Workshop for the entirety of their enrollment. The Gnomon Workshop provides an extensive library of online educational videos from professional artists covering a diverse range of tools, software, and media.
Health Insurance Mandate
All students enrolled in a course of study at Gnomon are required to have health insurance. California law requires you to have health insurance. Unless you qualify for an exemption, you will be required to pay a tax penalty if you go without health insurance in California. The California law took effect on January 1, 2020. To avoid the California tax penalty, you must have what California considers “minimal essential coverage” (MEC) or prove your eligibility for an exemption.

International Students seeking health insurance options should reach out to Student Affairs for more information.
Gnomon Student Assistance Program (GSAP)
The Gnomon Student Assistance Program (GSAP) is a confidential, free resource to assist program students in managing a wide variety of issues that affect their daily lives such as:
- Stress and anxiety
- Alcohol and drug dependency
- Family conflict
- Performance-related fears
- Fitting in culturally
The program also provides referrals to one-on-one counseling, as well as a variety of wellness-related community resources such as community and cultural events.

For more information, please contact the Student Affairs Office at email@example.com.
Gnomon provides virtual counseling services to program students seeking a short-term resource for coping skills and other mental health-related issues. Students are encouraged to utilize Gnomon’s counseling service to talk privately in a safe environment about personal concerns or crisis intervention situations; examine ways to manage stress, anxiety, sadness or frustration; and identify ways to make changes in their lives. Additionally, the service supports students while they seek referrals to outside agencies, groups, clinics, and therapists relating to issues such as stress, anxiety, depression, relationship problems, rape and assault, substance abuse, and other mental health concerns.
Through a confidential, online appointment system, students can schedule a free session with the School Counselor during normal school office hours. Gnomon’s School Counselor is a practicing psychotherapist with a Doctor of Psychology, an active state certified LMFT, and a certified substance abuse counselor. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Title IX Committee
Title IX of the Higher Education Amendments of 1972, 20 US Code § 1681(a), is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities and includes addressing sexual harassment, sexual violence, and other gender-based harassment occurring in an institution of education.
Gnomon is committed to fostering an educational and working climate free from sexual harassment, sexual assault, and sexual violence. To define conduct expectations and provide recourse for individuals whose rights have been violated, Gnomon implements strategic coordination of policies, education, and clear and equitable procedures for reporting and resolution of complaints of sexual misconduct.
We understand that student housing can be an integral part of your college education. Learning and living in a diverse community of like-minded peers is a transformative experience that can prepare you for your careers and a lifetime of making valuable connections. We recommend students begin to explore housing options several months before their expected move-in date. Please see our Housing & Visitor’s Guide for more information.
