You are eligible to schedule appointments at the SHC for any semester that you are a registered student and have paid the SHC medical services fee for that semester. You are not required to have health insurance to be seen in our clinic.
If you are under the age of 18 you will have to have parental consent to be treated and your parent/guardian can complete that consent online by completing the Treatment of a Minor Form.
Each semester when you pay the SHC medical services fee you have pre-paid for your office visits for as many times as you need to visit the Health Center during that semester.
Additional charges that you may incur during your visit based on your condition are: Laboratory service charges, Pharmacy charges and any procedure or supply charges. Any services recommended that will be an additional cost will be discussed with you during your visit.
If you have questions regarding a charge for a particular service and would like to inquire before scheduling with us please contact the SHC at 936-294-1805 and we can discuss that with you.
The Student Health Center does not accept payment for charges. Any Health Center fees will be added to your MySam account and paid through the Bursar’s office. If you need a copy of your statement of charges or have questions about your charges we can provide that to you at the SHC.
Your fees will need to be paid as promptly as possible and will be required to be paid within the semester that they were incurred.
