Fees & Payment

The Student Health Services fee provides students with quick and easy access to health care services. This fee covers the cost of an office visit. Other fees may be incurred during your office visit for vaccines, laboratory testing, and other ancillary fees. The Student Health Fee does not replace a health insurance plan.

The University negotiates for a health insurance plan by a health insurance company, that is required of all international students and eligible graduate students. This insurance plan may cover some of the cost of ancillary fees.

The semester health fee covers your visit with a healthcare provider. Ancillary fees, such as laboratory testing, orthopedic supplies, vaccines etc., are provided at an additional cost.

Fees are billed to their student account. If charges for Health Services are billed to the student's account, they can be paid online (by credit card plus CC fee) or at the Rollins Hall cashier's office (cash, check, money order).


Cash payments must be made in person in the Cashiers' Office. Service hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. We encourage students not to bring large sums of cash onto the campus. Large payments of cash are not recommended. The University offers other convenient payment options.
