Full-Time Student

All students who are identified by the University as full-time students are required to pay the Student Health Fee, which is included in their tuition and fees.

Part-Time Student

Part-time students have the option to pay the Student Health Fee. They can elect to pay the fee when they register for classes or at any time during the semester. They start receiving services at the time they pay the fee. If a student has dropped from full-time to part-time status during a semester and has received a full or partial refund of the Student Health Fee from the Office of Bursar Operations, the student must repay the remainder of the SHC fee to continue to be eligible.


The Cashier Area accepts cash, checks with appropriate identification, and most major credit cards. Students are not required to pay at the time of service. All unpaid charges are automatically transferred to their fee bill and can be viewed on MyLSU. In addition, the Cashier area can assist students with filing insurance claims.
