Special Considerations

Students must be seen or must contact the Health Centre within 24 hours of missing an examination to Apply for Special Consideration.

Cancelling Counselling Appointments

Counselling appointments can be cancelled / changed up to 24 hours before your appointment.

If you cancel a counselling appointment out of that timeframe, you will be charged $10.00. This must be paid at the time it is charged or before your next appointment.

Health Centre Counselling service is a student only service and we need to make sure that any available appointment slots are filled by students who need the help.

Please speak with the Practice Manager if you have exceptional circumstances for cancelling an appointment out of the time frame.

Register with the UC Health Centre

Being enrolled at UC does not automatically register you at the Health Centre – even if you have paid your student services levy.
