SHS charges $15 for primary care office visits. For other services provided, SHS offers discounted fees. These charges can all be applied to the student’s fee account, which will then be paid to Student Business Services. SHS also accepts all major credit cards, checks (with driver’s license, state issued identification card, or passport), as well as payments from Insurance Plans (visit the Health Insurance webpage for more information).
Health Center Fee
The Student Health Fee is $75.00 per semester and is included with tuition and fees for enrolled students. This is a mandatory fee all students pay for access to health care, health education, and in support of public health initiatives for the campus. Students who are not residing locally can use our telemedicine service.

Late Arrival and Missed Appointments
Students are advised to check in 15 minutes prior to the student’s scheduled appointment time. If a student arrives late or does not make the scheduled time, a $25 fee will be placed on the student’s account.
Former Student Charges
If a former student is being asked to pay charges owed to TAMU - Student Health Services on his/her TAMU Student Account through Student Business Services (SBS), please understand that charges may have posted after the student's graduation date. In some instances, outstanding balances may also have been transferred from the previous system to the current Compass (student information and financial) system and are now accessible. These charges should be paid to SBS. If a former student has questions regarding charges for services incurred at TAMU Student Health Services, please contact Patient Services at (979) 458-8310.
