Student Health Services

Student Health Services Operations

Students may use the Student Health Centers in Dahlonega or Gainesville, rather than an urgent care, primary care, or emergency facility, but they should schedule an appointment ahead of time.

Students should contact Student Health Services by email or phone before going to the Health Center, particularly if they have potential COVID-19 symptoms.

COVID-19 Testing

New Patient Portal

Log in to our new patient portal to do the following:

  • self-schedule appointments
  • complete medical history and consent forms
  • access lab results 
  • contact staff

Student Health Services aims to provide basic health care services and teach prevention and self-help skills to students.

Who is eligible to use Student Health Services?

All currently enrolled University of North Georgia (UNG) students who pay the student health fee are eligible for care at Student Health Services.

The health fee is not mandatory on the Blue Ridge, Cumming or Oconee campuses, but these students may pay the fee and take advantage of the services offered on the Dahlonega and Gainesville campuses.

Appointments

Office visits for Student Health are currently scheduled by appointment only. We request that you please give our office at least 24-hour notice in the event that you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment. Patients arriving 10 minutes past their scheduled appointment time will be asked to reschedule.

Call and emails sent after business hours will be answered the following business day. If you are having a medical emergency, please call 911 to receive timely treatment.

Insurance Information

Students should have a copy of his or her insurance card with them. An available copy of your insurance card can be attached to your medical history form for information only. The clinic does not provide billing for insurance. The clinic does not treat auto-accidents or workman's compensation due to insurance requirements. The clinic does not fill out insurance claim forms. A school insurance policy is available for students to purchase. Contact the Business Office for more information: 706-864-1407 (Dahlonega) or 678-717-3780 (Gainesville).

Medically Excused Absence

In the event you suffer an illness or injury that requires you to miss class, student health will provide you with discharge paperwork that provides specific discharge instructions regarding absence and return to class. We do not fill out disability paperwork or paperwork for employment. The student can request a copy of their medical record to take to their Primary Care Provider in the event specialized care is needed.
