Who is eligible to be seen at SHS?

ALL REGISTERED UCSB STUDENTS are eligible to be seen at
Student Health Service

Registered UCSB Students

All registered UCSB students are eligible for services available through Student Health at student rates.

No payment is required at the time of service or purchase.  Charges incurred at student health are billed directly to a student’s BARC as long as the student's BARC account is in good standing. Otherwise, an access or credit card payment is required at the time of service.

Students can view their Student Health statements online through the UCSB Student Health Gateway Portal.

Confidentiality

Specific information about a patient’s charges or visit is not shared with others and will not show up on a student’s account. Only the words “Student Health Service Charge,” the month end billing date, and the dollar amount of the month’s charges will appear on a student’s account.

Registered students who do not wish to have their charges show up on their student account can choose to pay at the time of service.

Graduating students are also eligible for services at non-student rate, and are only eligible one quarter after their last registered quarter.
