FAU STUDENT HEALTH SERVICES
Student Union (SR), Room 206
Florida Atlantic University Student Health Services provides high quality healthcare, education and public health services to a diverse community to enhance student learning and promote lifelong success.
Student Health Services will be an outstanding resource committed to meeting the changing health and wellness needs of the University community.
The Student Health fee, part of your tuition, helps defray the costs for routine visits for common illnesses and injuries. Fee-for-services charges are assessed for office visits, treatments and supplies, among other services. We provide a variety of gynecological services that include routine annual check-ups (pap smear, pelvic and breast exam), contraception counseling, pregnancy testing, and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases and vaginal infections. All services are provided for a reduced fee by appointment only.
All FAU students who are enrolled in the current semester are eligible for services. Students enrolled in the previous semester may be eligible for services; inquire at Student Health Services. Proof of current enrollment is required. All students must present a valid photo ID before receiving services.
LOCATION & HOURS
We are conveniently located in the Student Union Building, Room 206.
Closed Saturday, Sunday and holidays.
Hours may change during breaks and are subject to change each semester.
Laboratory tests needed to assist in diagnosis and follow-up are available at a reduced fee. X-rays and other sophisticated diagnostic testing are referred to community resources, where the student is responsible for payment for services.
The following immunizations are available at discounted rates:
Your medical records contain a complete history of your health care at Student Health Services and are confidential. Medical records cannot be released without your written consent. The only exceptions to the above are: (1) information necessary for public welfare, and (2) records subpoenaed by the court. A small fee is charged for copies of medical records.
A student sickness and injury insurance plan is available for a reasonable fee. Brochures presenting this program and its costs are available at Student Health Services. International students must show proof of insurance.
Student Health Services does not provide excuses for missed classes.
Appointments must be cancelled by 5 p.m. the workday prior to the scheduled appointment to avoid no-show charges.
Emergency services, those required for life-threatening conditions, are not provided by Student Health Services. For any medical emergency on campus, please call 911.
COLLEGIATE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (24-HOUR NURSE TRIAGE)
