Services and Fees


The Student Health Center provides many services for the undergraduate APU community, including the following:

Find out your cholesterol levels at the Student Health Center in just 5 minutes with only a finger-stick. All you need to do is make an appointment with our nurse and then fast for at least 8 hours beforehand. It is free if you have any risk factors, or $40 if you don't. To view the list of cardiac risk factors, scroll down to "Cholesterol screening" under "Fees."


The following preventive services are provided for a fee that will be covered completely by student health insurance (United Healthcare), once their parents' insurance is billed (if they have one). When you are ready to submit it to your student insurance plan, talk to Joyce "Tickie" Moline at the insurance desk in the SHC.
