Health Fee/Costs

Health Fee

The cost of the health fee is $118.50 per semester (2013-2014 rate). Students enrolled for more than 4 semester hours automatically pay this fee. For more information about this, see the Registrar's website at: Tuition and Fees.  This fee supports many services:

  • Unlimited student office visits with a healthcare provider for illness or injury at no cost
  • Subsidizes the costs associated with other services
  • Public health initiatives on campus
  • NurseLine (phone access to a registered nurse for health information and advice)
  • Health education and promotion across campus and visits made to Westlawn and the CRWC for health promotion services such as the following consultations:
    • Fitness
    • Nutrition
    • Tobacco cessation
    • Stress management
    • Sexual health

Are you enrolled for 0-4 semester hours?

If a student is enrolled for less than 5 hours, they are not automatically charged the health fee. They can still receive inexpensive, quality healthcare through SHW. Visit our Forms page where you can download a form to pay the health fee. Students who do not pay the health fee are charged for each office visit, in addition to any lab tests, supplies, immunizations, etc.


Charges are assessed for the following services:

  • Lab tests
  • Immunizations
  • Allergy injections
  • Medical supplies
  • Physicals (annual exams)
  • Minor procedure/surgery (i.e. wart removal, stitches, etc.)
  • Minor gyn procedures (i.e. colposcopy, Implanon insertion, IUD insertion)
  • Substance abuse services


  • Student Health & Wellness will submit charges to insurance
  • U-bill
  • Cash/Check
  • We cannot accept credit card or debit card payments
  • Charges from University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics, QuickCare clinics, and any other non-SHW clinic will be the student's responsibility
