Funded by a student health fee, there is no additional charge for unlimited office visits to see a nurse or health care provider (physician / nurse practitioner) for enrolled and eligible students. Insurance is NOT required to use services at Student Health Service.
Examples of services that will result in a charge include:
- immunizations / injections
- laboratory services
- prescriptions / medications
- treatments / supplies
- x-ray exams
If a student has an appointment that incurs a charge, NDSU Customer Account Services will bill the student's account. Charges can be paid online through Campus Connection or in person at NDSU One Stop, located on the main floor of the Memorial Union. After the charges are submitted to the student's account, they have 30 days to pay the charges or a late fee will be assessed. When charges have been posted, an itemized statement for services will be available online through the Student Health Portal or upon request at Student Health Service. It may take up to 1-2 weeks for the statement to become available.
For students who want to utilize the Student Health Service during the summer and are enrolled in spring and fall semester but not summer classes, there is an annual one-time summer user fee. There is no additional fee for students enrolled in summer session as it is funded through student fees.
Student Health Service does not file insurance claims with Medicaid, Medicare or any other health insurance carriers. It is the RESPONSIBILITY OF THE STUDENT to file medical claims with their insurance carrier if they wish to seek reimbursement. However, the Student Health Service Pharmacy is able to submit prescription claims to most insurance carriers. For any questions related to prescription insurance coverage, please contact the Pharmacist at 701-231-7332.
TO FILE HEALTH INSURANCE CLAIMS FOR CHARGES, please contact your health insurance company for specific directions on how to file a claim.

January 1, 2019 - SHS will begin billing insurance!
Fall 2018 semester - students utilizing Student Health Service will continue to receive office visits at no additional cost as this is funded by the student health fee. However, charges will apply for any additional services such as immunizations, injections, procedures, supplies, medical lab services, prescriptions, over the counter medications and x-ray services. It is the responsibility of the student to file medical claims with their insurance carrier if they wish to seek reimbursement (with the exception of Pharmacy, which will continue to submit prescription claims to most insurance carriers).
Beginning January 1, 2019 - Student Health Service will begin submitting health insurance claims for students who receive clinical services.
