Schedule a student medical appointment: (813) 253-6250

Certain types of appointments are available only on certain days. Services are provided on an appointment basis, but walk-ins will be evaluated and given appointments or seen immediately based on the urgency of their condition.

Students should use the Student Health Portal to complete medical visit forms prior to their appointment. This allows the student to complete forms at their convenience, accurately and in privacy.

Arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time. This allows you to have time to fill out any additional paperwork and will maximize the amount of time you are able to spend with your medical provider. If you arrive at your appointment time more than 5 minutes late, you will be rescheduled for another time.

No-show Fees 

To increase appointment slots available, students who cannot make their appointment as scheduled need to call and reschedule. A no show fee will be charged if you do not cancel/reschedule as indicated below:

  • Counseling Appointments: $25 fee if not canceled a minimum of 24 hours before appointment time.
  • Women's Health Appointments: $25 fee if not canceled a minimum of two hours before appointment time.
  • Any Other Appointments: $25 fee if not canceled a minimum of two hours before appointment time.

Students can cancel appointments by sending an email to healthcenter@ut.edu or calling the Health Center at 813-253-6250.
