About Us


Regardless of home campus, USF students who are currently registered for classes are eligible to receive services at Student Health & Wellness Center (SHWC). You will need to present your current, valid USF student ID card when you come into the clinic. If you are taking a semester off (e.g. enrolled for Fall 2021 but not taking classes Summer 2021), you can access services at SHWC during the off-semester if you pay a Health Fee. USF graduates who can show proof they will be continuing in a USF program within 2 semesters following graduation may also voluntarily pay a health fee to access services between enrollment.

USF employees may be eligible to receive healthcare services at the Student Health clinic. Visit the Faculty & Staff page for more details.

No Show Fee
If you have an appointment that you cannot keep, please call SHWC at least 2 hours before your appointment time to cancel or reschedule. If you fail to cancel and do not show up for your scheduled time, you may be assessed a No Show fee of $30 on OASIS.

Late / Tardy
When you are late, it causes other scheduled appointments to be delayed, which isn't fair to other patients. Therefore, if you arrive more than 10 minutes late for your scheduled appointment, you will be rescheduled. We recommend that you aim to arrive 10 to 15 minutes ahead of your scheduled appointment to ensure you have plenty of time to find parking, check in, complete any necessary paperwork and relax for a moment before seeing your provider.

Medical Excuses
Students may experience medical conditions, psychological conditions, illnesses or injuries that require them to be away from the classroom or workplace, or that affect their ability to perform optimally in class or on exams.

Per USF policy, all students must comply with the provisions of the University catalog. Attendance is the responsibility of the student and instructors have the discretion to approve or disapprove any absence. Although SHWC may verify that you received care and offer a statement in support of consideration of an excused absence, only the instructor may excuse an absence.

Unless you are a patient or a friend or family member escorting a patient, you will need to sign in to our Visitor Log at the front desk before entering any clinical areas.
