NOTE:  The Student Health Service prioritizes students with scheduled appointments. 

If you choose to walk in to SHS without an appointment, we will do our best to fit you into the schedule.  There may be lengthy wait times and there is no guarantee that we can see you the same day.

If you have an urgent medical concern and need to be seen the same day, please come to SHS to speak with a Nurse.

We encourage you to schedule your appointment online to expedite your services.

Due to high patient demand and the limited availability of appointments, Student Health Services has a $20 no show fee. You must give advance notice to cancel an appointment or you will be charged the no show fee.
