Eligibility for Care at the Student Health Center (SHC)

Eligibility for Care at the Student Health Center (SHC)


The SHC is totally funded by student fees, therefore only students are eligible for services. BU faculty, staff and all campus visitors needing medical care will be instructed to go to the Geisinger-Bloomsburg Hospital emergency department or their private health care provider.

Students taking nine or more credits on campus will have full access to the SHC and:

  • will be billed the health services fees with their tuition

Students taking less than nine credits on campus, student teachers or students enrolled in an internship are not billed the health services fee with their tuition. To access services they:

  • must sign a fee agreement at time of service
  • will be billed the health services fee by the business office

Are you a summer student and need services?

  • Your health services fee will be based on the number of credits taken

All new students are required to complete and submit their Health Form online, regardless of the number of credits they are taking. Health Center Web Portal/Access Your Account
