The UHC remains open and encourages students to use their facilities. Currently, UHC is seeing students in the clinic or through telemedicine appointments.

The University Health Center, located on Southeastern Louisiana University’s campus, is available to all enrolled university students. For the enrolled students, services are free of charge because students pay for the Health Center in semester dues. However, the UHC charges students a small fee for testing and immunizations.

During the summer semesters, the UHC is open from Monday through Thursday, 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and is closed on Fridays. During the fall and spring semesters, the UHC has available appointments Monday through Thursday from 7:45 a.m to 4:30 p.m. and on Fridays from 7:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.

Currently, the UHC is seeing students in the clinic or through telemedicine appointments. Telemedicine is health-related services delivered by the means of telecommunication technologies. Students who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms must schedule a telemedicine appointment. Below is a list of COVID-19 symptoms.

  •     Shortness of breath or trouble breathing
  •     Fever or chills
  •     Pain or pressure in the chest
  •     Cough
  •     Fatigue
  •     Muscle or body aches
  •     New loss of taste or smell
  •     Sore throat
  •     Congestion or runny nose
  •     Nausea or vomiting
  •     Diarrhea

Students who do not have COVID-19 symptoms and make an appointment to be seen in the clinic must wear a mask.

All appointments, including telemedicine/virtual visits, are made online at the UHC’s webpage, https://www.southeastern.edu/admin/health_ctr/. Also located on the UHC’s webpage are a list of services provided and prices for those services. At your appointment time, it is important that you bring the appropriate paperwork (located online) and your student ID. If you are receiving a service that requires a small fee, the payment method is through your Lion’s Lagniappe account on your student ID. You can load money in your lagniappe account by visiting www.southeastern.edu/lagniappe.
