Winthrop University: About Health Services

Eligibility for Services

The Health and Counseling fee is $180.00 per regular semester. This fee is assessed to undergraduate students enrolled in 6 or more credit hours and graduate students enrolled in 9 or more credit hours. Students not assessed this required fee, e.g., undergraduates taking under 6 credit hours and graduates under 9 credit hours, may access all regular Health and Counseling Services by paying the $180 per regular semester fee. Summer students may access Health and Counseling Services since all fees are rolled into the regular summer credit hour fee. Office visits are offered at no charge. Some services, e.g., laboratory, medical supplies/procedures, will incur a minimal fee.

Students who currently pay No health fee and are Not eligible for Health and Counseling Services:

  •  Students who are senior citizens
  •  Students who are Winthrop University employees
  •  Students taking special courses
  •  Students studying abroad

*Requirements for immunizations must be met before utilizing Health Services regardless of any of the above scenarios.

*Students who are pregnant will not be treated in Health Services. They will be referred to their primary physician, obstetrician, urgent care center or ER for care.

Students who Do Not pay the health fee and are Not Eligible to use Health and Counseling Services are as follows:

  •  Students who are senior citizens
  •  Students who are Winthrop University employees
  •  Students taking special courses
  •  Students studying abroad

In the summer, students not taking classes but registered for the previous and following semesters may use Health Services if the requirements for immunizations, as stated above, have been met. A $10 fee per visit will be charged. The student is responsible for any other charges incurred. All charges are billed to the student's account as "Health Services" and are due upon receipt of service.
