How to make an appointment
Appointments should be made in advance. See information about same-day appointment availability below.
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment time, because there may be paperwork or computer questions that will take time.
Email and/or text reminders about your appointment are sent to you in advance. Please ensure that we have your correct email address and mobile phone number.
Limited same-day appointments for acute illnesses, injuries or mental health needs are available on a first-come, first-served basis, Monday-Friday, starting at 8:30 a.m. Please be specific about your problem and its severity so we can ensure enough time for you and our staff.
The UAF Student Health and Counseling Center now offers after-hours mental health services for students who need immediate mental health care.
We understand that things come up from time to time, but as a courtesy to other students and in an effort to keep our staff from running behind schedule, we have the following late policy:
- Students who are 10 minutes late for a medical appointment will be rescheduled.
- Students who are 15 minutes or more late for counseling appointments will have to reschedule their appointments and may be charged a $25 no-show fee.
Failure to cancel or reschedule an appointment will result in a no-show fee. The no-show fee has been implemented for several types of appointments, including but not limited to:
- Annual physical exams
- Counseling appointments
- Firefighter physicals
- Dive physicals
- Same-day appointments
- Appointments with medical providers for mental health medications
If you have scheduled any of these types of appointments and fail to call us at 907-474-7043 prior to your appointment time to cancel, a $15 ($25 for counseling appointments) charge will be assessed to your student account.
