Service Extension Fee
Students attending UT during the fall 2014 sessions may use UHS and CMHC August 22, 2014 - January 15, 2015.
Currently enrolled UT students can use University Health Services and the Counseling and Mental Health Center because these services are funded, in part, by tuition. Current students do not need to sign up or pay a separate fee.
Other qualified individuals, like UT students who are staying in Austin over the summer but not taking classes at UT, can get access to the same UHS and CMHC care and services that current students enjoy by paying the Service Extension Fee.
Counseling and Mental Health Center services are subject to limitations on duration and frequency of services. Payment of the subscription fee does not override these limitations.

Cost and Coverage
The UHS/CMHC Service Extension Fee is $100 per semester.
The Service Extension Fee is an access fee, not health insurance. After the fee is paid for a semester, the individual can use UHS and CMHC services through the end of that semester:
Summer 2014: May 31, 2014 - August 21, 2014
Fall 2014: August 22, 2014 - January 15, 2015
The fee is non-refundable and cannot be prorated, meaning it costs the same even after the semester begins.
Or call 512-475-8394 or visit the UHS Cashier/Insurance Office (SSB 2.106) during regular business hours.
Who SHOULD Pay the Fee
Those who fit into one of the categories below and wish to use UHS and/or CMHC must pay the Service Extension Fee.
Students between Semesters
For continuity of care, students who attended UT last semester, aren't currently taking classes here, and plan to return next semester may pay the fee for access during the gap semester. Typically, these are students taking a summer semester away from UT to work or study elsewhere.
Post-Doctoral Fellows and University/Visiting Scholars
Post-docs and visiting scholars who are not officially registered for classes at UT Austin can pay the access fee. Specific documentation from the program with which they are affiliated is required.
Individuals registered at UT for a future semester and not the current one can pay the fee for access during the semester immediately before their first semester at UT. Future students do not need to pay this fee to get immunizations and medical tests required or recommended to attend UT at UHS.
For access to UHS and CMHC services other than immunizations, ESL students must pay the fee. ESL student scan attend their immunization clinics without paying this fee.
