Eligibility for Services

Clinical Services Eligibility

Students are eligible for ongoing clinical services at Western's Counseling and Wellness Center if they meet BOTH of the following criteria: 

  • Enrolled in 3 or more credits for the current quarter 
  • Paid the Health Services Fee for the current quarter 

The Health Services Fee

The Health Services fee provides eligibility for services at the Counseling and Wellness Center and the Student Health Center. Students enrolled in six or more credits are automatically billed the Health Services fee. Students enrolled in fewer than six credits must give authorization to have the Health Services fee billed to their account. 

Manually Paying the Health Services Fee

To pay the Health Services Fee manually, call the Student Health Center at 360-650-3400 and ask to have the Authorization to Manually Bill the Health Services Fee Form sent to you through the MyWesternHealth.wwu.edu patient portal.  

Please note that it may take up to two weeks to process the form.  

If you are unable to pay the Health Services fee due to a financial hardship, you may request a waiver. Email your request to student.health@wwu.edu  AND cwc@wwu.edu
