              If you decide to be self-pay (no insurance), your clinic fees will not show up on your Student Business account for

              about 2 to 3 weeks.

                            - You will have 10 days to pay the balance.

Triage Nurse

              A Triage Nurse is available when there are NO appointments available.

                            - You do not need an appointment and there is no service fee for the Triage Nurse.

                            - They work on a first come first served basis.

                            - They will assess your needs and assess when you need to see a provider or advise you how to

                               manage the issue on your own.

              Release of Information  form (you can find it below in Helpful Tools).

                            - Once completed, you can either email it to us or stop by the clinic.

Graduate Students

              Due to how tuition is billed for your level of education, you will have to pay a $75 medical service fee on your first visit                   every semester.

                            - Undergraduates pay this in their tuition.

                            - If you do not pay the fee, we cannot treat you.

                                       You can have it billed to your Student Business account.


Summer Semesters

              Students are required to pay a bridge fee if they were enrolled in the Spring semester and Fall semester but are not                     enrolled in the Summer Sessions.

                            Please note, if you are transferring to the Health Sciences Center, you will have to visit

                            Family Medicine and not our clinic.

              Students who are not eligible for Bridge Fees are those who were not enrolled in the Spring Semester and those                           starting University in the Fall.

                            If the student cannot pay the fee at the time of the visit, a hold will be placed on their account

                            until the fee is paid.
