Appointments and Fees

Appointments & Fees

Schedule an Appointment

Health Services sees patients primarily by appointment. To schedule an appointment do one of the following:

  • Call 815-753-1311
  • Visit our Secure Patient Website
  • Go to the Health Services front desk and talk with a scheduler 

A Triage Nurse is available for phone calls or "walk-ins" without an appointment. Scheduling an appointment in advance is highly recommended.


NIU student fees cover most services provided by Health Services. There are NO charges for x-rays, physician or nurse visits. There are charges for medications, immunizations, missed appointments, some lab tests, and certain specialized procedures and supplies. Charges may be paid by cash, check, credit card or charged to your NIU Bursars account.  Some charges are covered by Student Health Insurance.


No Show/Missed Appointment Fees

To encourage students to keep their appointments, or to call if they cannot, Health Services has implemented the following no show/missed appointment fees.

  • Medical Services $25
  • Women’s & Men’s Health  $25
  • Colposcopy, IUD, Nexplanon insertion $50
  • Psychiatry (Initial visit) $75
  • Psychiatry (Return visit)  $50

To avoid a no show/missed appointment fee, cancel the appointment prior to its schedule time by calling Health Services at 815-753-1311 (available 24 hours) or by going to our Secure Patient Website.
