Welcome to the Student Health Center
Other Campus Resources
The Student Health Center provides both primary and preventative health care to currently enrolled students who have paid the medical services fee along with their tuition. The payment of the medical fee allows students to schedule appointments with medical providers at no additional cost to them.
The caring staff of licensed medical providers is committed to keeping students healthy and providing for their medical needs. The clinic is open Monday-Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and on Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Students needing immediate medical attention after hours or on weekends should go to a local physician, urgent care facility, minute clinic, or a hospital emergency room if they have a true emergency.
Special Announcements and Updates
Tuberculosis (TB) Skin Test Shortage
There is currently a nationwide shortage of Tubersol, which is used to perform the Tuberculosis Skin Test. This shortage is due to the current high demand for this product. At this time the Student Health Center is able to give a limited number of Tuberculosis Skin Tests. Students have the option to get the IGRA blood test, which also screens for Tuberculosis. The IGRA blood test is $60.
Changes for Fall 2014
- Beginning fall, 2014, students who have purchased the UT Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) will no longer be required to make payment at the time they receive services. The Student Health Center will start filing insurance claims directly with Blue Cross Blue Shield on behalf of students who are covered by the plan. Services received at the UT Dallas Student Health Center are 100% covered by the UTD SHIP. Students who have chosen NOT to purchase the UT SHIP will continue to be required to make payment at the time they receive services.
- Thanks to the UTD Student Fee Advisory Committee, 75% of the cost of STD screenings will be supplemented by allocations from the medical services fee. Students who request these screenings and are not covered by the UT Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) will be required to pay only 25% of the cost. Students covered by the UT SHIP will not be required to pay anything since their services are covered by the plan.
