Fees

UNW Health Services is funded by a Health Services fee that all traditional undergraduate students pay. The Health Services staff works hard to provide you with quality health care without any additional cost or fees.

There are some medical tests, immunizations and prescription medications that are offered at an additional cost. These charges are billed to the student’s account. Costs are subject to change.

Students are responsible for all off-campus laboratory testing, x-rays or scans, and any care at an off-campus medical facility.

Please contact Health Services for cost of certain tests, immunizations and or prescriptions medications.
