  • Students will be responsible for the charges that are incurred during their visit. Payment is required at the time services are rendered. We accept cash, check, debit & credit card. No Campus Cards.

    • The Student Health Insurance Plan can be billed for all fees except the $5 administrative visit fee (this is only for medical services listed on the fee sheet)
    • No other insurance companies can billed for these fees. Students can request an itemized receipt to submit to their insurance company for reimbursement at checkout. Due to the significant variance in insurance policies, it is important for students to know what their plan covers and whether they will be reimbursed for the services received at the SHC. It is the responsibility of the student to know what their insurance plan covers.
  • Services provided outside the Student Health Center are the responsibility of the student and their medical insurance (this includes laboratory testing done at LabCorp)

Aside from the $5.00 administrative visit fee, there may charges for tests, immunizations (including flu shots) and special surgical procedures based.  We try to keep our prices as low as possible so that all students can benefit from using the Health Center.

How can I pay?

Cash, check, debit or credit card (only Visa and Mastercard).  Students must pay for services and tests at the time of their visit.  We are not able to accept the Campus card.

I have student insurance. Doesn't this cover all of the charges?

Even students with the Student Health Insurance Plan are responsible for the $5 administrative visit fee. Other fees charged at the SHC can be billed to the student insurance. See the
