At SHCC, we continue to evaluate our needs and the needs of students to ensure great care in a timely manner. We continue to provide counseling and medical services to eligible students.

Who is eligible for SHCC services?

Students assessed the health fee are eligible for services. Students taking 1+ credit of in-person or hybrid classes on the Monmouth campus are automatically assessed the health fee. All other registered students may choose to opt-in to have the fee assessed to their student account.

How much is the health fee? 

The health fee is $154 per term. It is billed to your student account.

 What are the exceptions?

There are students taking online only courses that would not be eligible for services based on their location and due to licensing rules. Due to licensing rules for our medical and counseling providers, students must be located in the state of Oregon to receive services.

 Why should I opt in?

If you are enrolled in online only classes, you may opt in to pay the Health Fee, which will be assessed to your student account. This service is highly recommended for students living on campus or in nearby communities, for students who do not have insurance, and for students who want the comfort of knowing they can access medical and counseling services at any time. You must be located in Oregon at the time service is provided. 


Students are encouraged to call or visit the SHCC to schedule appointments. Students coming onto the premises for their scheduled appointment must wear a mask/face covering. Student must come alone to the scheduled appointment to help reduce risk of exposure to other students and our staff.
