Consistent with university policy
, our providers do not provide written excuses for students missing class. HWS provides a letter
for instructors requiring a doctor’s note to excuse an absence.
Students enrolled in 7 or more credits are charged the mandatory health fee with tuition. The health fee maintains the availability of basic services to students. Part-time students can elect to pay the health fee to access services. Learn more about eligibility
Although our pharmacy
is available to everyone, health care services are not generally available to spouses or children. Spouses/partners of graduate and professional students can enroll in our PASS Program
to obtain access to some services.
Students enrolled at regional WSU campuses should review their respective campus resources to learn about available health services:
What does the health fee cover?
The health fee maintains the availability of basic health services and programs on campus. Every student taking 7 or more credits is automatically charged the health fee with tuition for the fall and spring semesters. The summer health fee is charged for all students enrolled in any of the sessions offered.
Paying the health fee allows students to access the programs and services Health & Wellness Services provides and covers some services in full, including visits to Counseling and Psychological Services
and health programs
The health fee does not cover all services available at the medical clinic and is not an insurance plan. Details on insurance and costs can be found on the billing
How much is the health fee?
You can view the current health fee on the WSU Budget Office
Can the health fee be refunded if I don’t access services at HWS?
The health fee is generally nonrefundable. However, students who are enrolled but not physically located at WSU Pullman may submit a Health Fee Petition Form
to be considered for a refund.
Upon withdrawal or cancellation of enrollment from the University, a refund of the health fee may be denied if the student has utilized health services prior to withdrawal/cancellation of enrollment.
If a student completes a full cancellation of enrollment from classes and has not accessed services at either Health & Wellness Services or Counseling & Psychological Services within the first 10 days of class (or five days for the summer session), they will receive a full refund of their health fee. Cancellations after this time period will not be eligible for health fee refund.
Federal and state regulations prohibit us from discussing health information with anyone other than the patient without written permission. Parents cannot access a student’s medical records without consent from the student.
