Summer Session Fees

Now that summer has come, many students are not taking classes but they would still like to utilize Student Health Service (SHS) or the Counseling Center (CCSD).  Not in summer school?  You may be eligible to still receive care at SHS & CCSD.

Did you just graduate?  Congratulations!  Due to anti-trust laws, SHS cannot continue to provide your healthcare, but we can 1) help you transfer your records to the office of your choice, 2) provide you with a list of local offices if you need help establishing care outside, or 3) we do have a 2 week grace period following graduation if you need to come in for a follow up of an existing problem (i.e. to get a medication refilled, or to finish up treatment for a particular problem or concern).

If you did not graduate, but are just not taking classes in summer school, you may still be eligible for care at SHS and/or CCSD.  In order to qualify for services at SHS/CCSD in the summer when you are not taking classes,

          • you must have been enrolled this past spring AND
          • you must be registered for fall classes

If you meet those criteria, you can be seen at SHS/CCSD for a special summer fee.  The summer fee is necessary because you are not taking classes for the summer or paying any tuition, so you are not paying the usual health fee.  To pay the health fee for either SHS or CCSD service, stop by the Student Health Center.

There are 2 options for paying the summer fee for care at SHS:
Per visit fee $30.00
OR
Need multiple visits? Pay $60.00 for unlimited visits per summer session.

Need care at CCSD?  One option is available:
$60.00 per session (the per visit fee is not available for CCSD service)

First summer session fees are charged May 19-June 24.
Second summer session fees are charged June 25-Aug 1.

Once summer classes end, the only option for the fee is $30 per visit from August 4-August 22. (CCSD’s services may be limited during this period)

Questions?  Call SHS at (252) 328-6841 or CCSD at (252) 328-6661.

Have a healthy summer!

May Intersession Hours: May 12-16

Now that summer classes are over for most students, Student Health Service has a change in operating hours for the May Intersession, May 12-16.

Our office is closed Monday, May 12, for an all day staff development event.

Tuesday-Friday, May 13-16, Student Health is open for general business (dropping off forms, requesting medical records, general information) from 7:30am-12noon & 1pm-5pm.  Patient care hours (for appointments, dressing changes, pharmacy, etc) are 1:30pm-4pm daily.  We are closed Saturday/Sunday.  Please also note:  SHS is CLOSED from 12pm-1pm for the lunch hour daily.

A visit fee is required during this period to be seen as a patient at SHS.  The fee is $30 per visit, in addition to any other charges you may incur during your appointment (lab, pharmacy, xray, etc).  The reason there is a visit fee is because during intersession, no student fees are supporting campus services.  We are open as a courtesy and convenience to students even when there are no classes, but your tuition and fees do not cover this period of service.

If you need care when SHS is not open, do not forget about our free 24 hour nurse line.  Just call our main number below and wait on the line.  This service is available to all ECU students.

For more information about our intersession hours or the visit fee for service, call us at (252) 328-6841.
