Student Health Fee

Included in the tuition bill is a mandatory student administrative health fee that all registered students must pay. The fee allows eligible students to access University Health Center services and helps to keep costs low, so students can afford care regardless of their insurance status. In addition, it funds wellness activities, provides access to contraceptives and safer sex resources, and enables the health center to respond to campus health emergencies.

The student health fee is not health insurance.

The health fee is not health insurance; you are still responsible for paying for services at the health center, but those costs will be much lower than similar services off campus because of the fee.

Health Center Access for Non-students

Are you graduating or taking the term/semester off from classes? Do you intend to register but haven’t yet? If you need to access the health center but are no longer a registered or enrolled student, you may be eligible to access UHC if you meet one of the following criteria:

  1. You are admitted to the UO for the current or upcoming term/semester, but you have not yet registered for classes.  
  2. You were enrolled as a UO student during the prior academic term/semester for at least one day and either withdrew or graduated. 

The fee options are as follows:

  • Per-visit access fee ($25.00 plus applicable UHC charges)
  • Full access fee ($172.50 plus applicable UHC charges)

When you call to schedule your appointment or check-in, UHC staff will help determine your eligibility and review your fee options. If you have any questions, please contact us at 541-346-2770. 

Health Insurance

The UO recommends that all students have health insurance to cover unexpected medical expenses. We offer the UO Student Health Benefits Plan, or we can courtesy bill several other companies. Stop by the University Health Center to register your health insurance.
