Student Health Center (SHC)
The SHC is an on-campus primary care, outpatient clinic that provides enrolled students with preventative care services, a women’s health clinic, laboratory testing, a pharmacy, and dental services.
Clinic visits are covered as long as you are paying the medical services fee each semester. You may have additional charges for any laboratory testing, pharmacy charges, and any procedures or supply charges. And the good new is any fees are charged directly to your SHSU account, so you don’t have to worry about paying at time of service.
