Hours of Service for Eligible Students

Our regular hours during the academic year are: 8:00 am - 4:30 pm. Students that have paid the semester based health center fee of $110 are eligible for services. Students taking 9 or more credits in the classroom on the main campus are automatically assessed this fee. Students taking between 6-8 credits or less than 9 credits on the main campus (ex: web based classes) have the option of paying this fee if they would like to receive services at the student health center.Hours of service are from 8:00 am - 4:30 pm Monday - Friday. Closed weekends and UAF holidays.

Summer Semester health center fee is $70 and based on students taking 6 credit hours during the summer, or other eligibility criteria. (see summertime services)


Appointments rules:

We see students on an appointment basis. Our goal is to meet the medical and counseling needs of the UAF students and work with the student's schedule as much as we can. Students need to arrive 15 minutes prior to their appointment time. (ex: appt is at 9:00 am, student must arrive at 8:45 am) If your appointment is at 9:30 and you call and tell us you are going to be late, we will reschedule the appointment because you are already late. If students arrive 10 min late for an appointment, they will be rescheduled.
We are closed on weekends and follow the UAF Holiday closure schedule. There is a list on the Community Resources page for walk-in and after-hours clinics.

If you need to reschedule your appointment, please call us at 474-7043.

A Consent for release of information is required when requesting your records. Please allow 24 hours notice if you would like a copy of your records or need a prescription refilled.

Because we are NOT a "walk-in" Clinic, we reserve "Same Day" appointments each day for acute care illnesses or acute injuries on our schedule. These "Same Day" appointments can not be released until 8:00 am in the morning, on a first come first serve basis. We do not open these times up in advance. An acute illness may consist of fever, vomiting or infection. Please be specific about your illness and its severity so we can ensure enough time for you and the medical provider.

These blocks of time have been specifically set aside for a same day illness.  If you cannot keep your appointment please call 474-7043 and cancel. If you fail to show up for your same day appointment there will be a $15 "No Show Fee" put on your student account.

See Community Resources link for after hours and weekend clinics available.
