Services and Pricing

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.

Student Health Services supports the basic health needs of the students of UNG and teaches prevention and self-help skills to students. 

A health professional will assess, evaluate, and treat students for minor illness and injury as well as general health maintenance. If after evaluating the student a provider feels an additional evaluation or treatment is required, the student will be referred to a local physician, hospital, or their private physician. 

All prices are subject to change. Please contact the clinic with questions or to confirm pricing.
