Due to high patient demand and the limited availability of appointments, SHS charges a $20 no-show fee if you miss your appointment. You must cancel your appointment in advance to avoid the no-show fee charge.

The no-show fee charge will appear on your account the day after your missed appointment.  Please pay this charge at the Bursar’s Office as no cash payments can be accepted at Student Health Services.

  • Cancel your appointment online via myHealth.
  • Call SHS at (415) 338-1251.  When SHS is closed, after dialing, press 2.
  • Please leave a message stating your First Name, Last Name, Student ID number, and the date and time of the appointment you wish to cancel.
  • Your message will be date and time stamped.

No shows for appointments will result in an automatic $20 charge to your Bursar’s account. If you feel you received this fee in error and would like to petition for a fee waiver, please note that petitions will only be approved for significant reasons.

To submit your petition, please email the SHS Business Office with the following information:

  • First Name, Last Name and Student ID #
  • Date of missed appointment and Explanation for Fee Waiver request
  • Send email to shsbilling@sfsu.edu.  
  • Subject line: No Show Fee Petition
  • You must use your SF State email address.
