Student Health Services
The University Health Clinic and the Center for Counseling Services are jointly based in the clinic facility which is south of the Office Annex Building off of Johnson Street. Both entities provide confidential services to ASU students.
All Services are available to currently enrolled students that have paid the Medical Services Fee. Students must present their valid ASU Student OneCard to access Health Services.“Distance Learners who would like to have access to campus Health Services are able to opt in by paying the Student Medical Service Fee at the clinic. FMI, please call us at (325)-942-2171.”
Examination, diagnosis, and consultation services are available at no charge. However, some fees do apply for injections or other medications. Students are responsible for the costs of lab work, X-rays, prescription drugs, and referrals.
Patients are seen through appointments: Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm (Walk-ins are assessed by the nursing staff.)
The clinic is closed on Saturdays/Sundays and when campus offices are closed in observance of state holidays. On the days that the clinic is closed, students may obtain a medical service authorization form from the University Police or their Residence hall staff and take this authorization form, their valid ASU ID, and insurance card to receive equivalent care at Shannon Urgent Care-South (FMI, please call 325-942-2171). Both clinics are closed on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. Click here for more information.
Trained professionals provide medical and counseling services at the University Health Clinic. Two nurse practitioners (under the supervision of a Medical Doctor) and two registered nurses provide medical care. Counseling Services offers three full-time and one part-time Licensed Professional Counselor(s) — two male and two female — so that students have a choice.
The clinic provides diagnostic services and treatments appropriate on an episodic, outpatient basis. It is not intended as a substitute for the health maintenance care given by a primary care provider. It can, however, provide invaluable services to students who cannot see a physician because of time constraints or distance. Any problems that cannot be treated at the clinic may be referred to medical sources off campus. Patient forms can be filled out ahead time, printed, and brought in with the first-time patient.
Attending college can be both exciting and a little unsettling. The Center for Counseling Services is available to help students take advantage of opportunities and deal with the challenges of college life.Students should call ahead for an appointment with a counselor unless it is an emergency.
