Healthcare, Counseling and Insurance
UNM Student Health Center
Service through the Student Health and Counseling Center (SHAC) is available to all UNM students. Services include primary medical care, walk-in clinic, pharmacy, womens and mens health, allergy and immunization, medical specialty clinics, physical therapy, lab and X-ray, travel health clinic, counseling, health education and prevention.
Students are not required to have health insurance to be seen. SHC services, in part, are subsidized by student activity fees, therefore, costs at the SHAC are typically lower than community rates. Fees will range depending on services; however, general appointment/walk-in costs are $15-$20 dollars.
The SHAC is located on Main Campus just north of Johnson Center and across the mall from the Student Union Building.
Some students experience stress while in law school. There is excellent care available through Counseling Services at SHAC. The first two individual sessions are free.
UNM/Student Health Insurance
This policy provides coverage for a semester or a 12-month period, regardless of geographic location. Dependent and spouse coverage is also available. This plan also offers optional dental coverage.
