Health Services

Georgia Southern University Health Services is a department of Auxiliary Services and the Division of Student Affairs. 

The Mission of Health Services is to provide high quality, compassionate healthcare, education and health promotion in support of student retention, graduation and positive long-term wellness. 

Health Services is available to all Georgia Southern students with locations on the Statesboro and Armstrong campuses for consultation, examination, diagnosis, and treatment of illnesses and injuries. Services in both locations include primary care, women’s health care, immunizations, laboratory testing, travel medicine and health promotion programming. Additional services at the Statesboro location include allergy injections, physical therapy, radiology services, retail pharmacy and vision care. Students may access services at either location.

Appointments on the Statesboro campus are self-scheduled using the Online Student Health (OSH) Patient Portal after logging into your WINGS or mygeorgiasouthern page. For appointments at the Armstrong campus clinic, call 912-961-5726. Same day appointments are available on a limited basis at both locations.

The Armstrong clinic is located at Compass point, 7000 Building. Operating hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00a.m – 5 p.m. An after hour and weekend Nurse Response Call Service is available for students by calling 1-855-779-7185. This service is staffed by experienced registered nurses who can assist with general health questions or, as well as referrals to area service providers as needed. Refer to our website for further information on community resources for emergencies and after hour care. All expenses related to emergency and after hours care are the responsibility of the student. 

All Georgia Southern University students are eligible for Health Services. Students enrolled in four (4) or more credit hours prepay the health fee at the beginning of each semester when tuition and student fees are paid. This entitles those students to receive services throughout the semester for examination and treatment. Students taking less than four (4) credit hours or taking on-line courses may choose to pay the semester health fee at the Health Center to receive services. Refer to our website for a list of services that are covered by the semester health fee. Additional discounted fees are charged for provider visits, medications, laboratory services, physical therapy, x-rays, vision care, allergy injections, immunizations and medical equipment. Some students may have medical conditions that require referral to other healthcare providers or specialists for consultation and/or treatment. All expenses related to these services are the responsibility of the student. Health Services will file claims to your insurance plan as requested for services received at the Statesboro clinic only. A self-pay rate is available at both clinics. 

A valid Georgia Southern University identification card is required to access services at Health Services. Insured students should also present a current insurance card for services received at the Statesboro clinic if they want to file a claim to their plan.

Students are encouraged to maintain health insurance coverage in case of hospitalization. For those who are no longer covered by their parents’ insurance plan, or who may elect to purchase additional insurance coverage, a student health insurance plan is available. For more information about this plan,  visit our web site for the link to the insurance company and their enrollment application form.
