Eligibility for Services at Student Health

Who is eligible for services at the University Student Health Center?
Students who pay the comprehensive student fee are eligible to receive care at the Student Health Center.  Any student with questions regarding eligibility should contact Student Health Medical Records at (434) 924-1525.  Please note that non-degree-seeking students or students on non-resident leave are not eligible for Student Health services. Students enrolled in the School of Continuing and Professional Studies and certain special degree programs, including the Darden MBA for Executives, Commerce MIT (16 months), Commerce MIS graduate plans, and the BIS undergraduate plan, are also not eligible for Student Health services.

Once I graduate from U.Va., may I still come to Student Health for my healthcare?
No. Students who have graduated are not eligible for Student Health services. Graduating students must conclude their care within the week following graduation.

If I purchase the family Aetna Student Health Plan, can my dependents come to Student Health for services?
No, only registered students who pay the comprehensive student fee are eligible for services. For information regarding dependent coverage see the Student Health Insurance Plan booklet.

Do students enrolled in Summer Session have to pay a fee to obtain access to Student Health Center services?
Yes. If you are not enrolled in Summer Session, continuing students may receive services at Student Health by paying, out-of-pocket, the same fee as registered students pay with their summer tuition. Self-pay students may pay $44.00 for 30 days of services. Students enrolled in Summer Session pay tuition and a comprehensive fee that covers their access to the Student Health Center. Paying the summer fee out-of-pocket is an option for students who are between semesters but not registered for Summer Session in order to allow them access to continuous care while staying in the area over the summer (e.g. for research or teaching responsibilities).
