UT University Health Services

Service Extension Fee

UT students enrolled in spring 2021 may use UHS January 15 through May 28, 2021.

Currently enrolled UT Austin students can use UHS without having to sign up or pay a separate fee, because services are funded, in part, by tuition.

Other qualified individuals can access the same UHS services that current students enjoy by paying the Service Extension Fee.

The fee is an access fee, not health insurance, and allows the individual to use UHS services through the end of that semester. Charges apply for all UHS services, just as they do for enrolled students.

Qualified individuals (see below) do not have to pay the Service Extension Fee just to use physical therapy, registered dietitian consultations or lab or radiology services, because tuition does not fund these services.

Cost and Coverage

The UHS Service Extension Fee is $50 per semester.

The fee is non-refundable and cannot be prorated, meaning it is $50 even if paid after the semester begins.

Pay online or call the UHS Billing and Insurance Office at 512-475-8394

Who Can Pay the Fee to Access UHS

Students Between Semesters (see summer 2020 waiver of this requirement above)

For continuity of care, students who attended UT last semester, are not currently taking UT Austin classes and plan to return next semester may pay the fee to use UHS during the gap semester (typically students not taking UT Austin classes over the summer).

Post-Doctoral Fellows and University/Visiting Scholars

These individuals are not officially registered for UT Austin classes. UHS requires specific documentation from the program with which they are affiliated.

Future Students

Individuals registered at UT Austin for a future semester (and not the current one) can pay the fee to access UHS during the semester immediately preceding their “future” semester at UT Austin. Future students do not have to pay the fee to get immunizations and medical tests at UHS that are required or recommended to enroll.

ESL Students

To access UHS services, ESL students must pay the fee. However, they can attend immunization clinics scheduled for ESL students without paying the fee.

Who Cannot Pay the Fee to Access UHS

  • Graduating students who will not return the semester following graduation (see summer 2020 waiver of this exclusion above).
  • Those who last attended UT more than one semester prior to the current semester.
  • Spouses and children of UT students.
