Important Announcements

One of the goals of Student Health Services is to provide quality health care in a timely manner for our patients. Patients should call SHS (703-993-2831) to cancel or reschedule an appointment at least 4 hours prior to the appointment time.  Cancelling your appointment with enough notice allows this time to be made available to another patient.

Beginning August 25, 2014 there will be a $10.00 no-show fee assessed if a patient misses their appointment and/or does not cancel their appointment at least 4 hours prior to the appointment time.

Beginning July 1, 2014 Student Health Services will no longer accept cash payments. Payments can still be made via check, Visa, MasterCard and Mason Money, as well as online.
