Service Extension Fee

UT students enrolled in summer 2021 may use UHS May 29 through August 19, 2021.

NEW! Summer 2021 Service Extension Fee Waivers/Expanded Eligibility for the Following Students

To reduce the financial burden for students during these still unusual times, UHS has extended eligibility or waived the Service Extension Fee for the following students through August 19, 2021. All regular charges for services apply.

  • Students who complete the spring 2021 semester and will return in fall 2021. Typically, these students must pay a $50 fee to use UHS over the summer. This year the fee is waived.
  • May 2021 graduates. Students who have graduated usually cannot use UHS, but eligibility has been extended this year, and the Service Extension Fee does not apply.

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, the 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.

Who Can Pay the Fee to Access UHS

Students Between Semesters

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). See Summer 2021 Exceptions to Paying the Service Extension Fee above.

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 2021 Exceptions to Paying the Service Extension Fee above).
  • Those who last attended UT more than one semester prior to the current semester.
  • Spouses and children of UT students.
