Virtual Urgent Care

Main page content

Virtual Urgent Care (VUC) will be available to students free beginning in 2017-18. This is the first time UW Tacoma has offered this new service, and Student Health Services is finalizing the details needed to offer VUC free of charge. In the meantime, UW Tacoma students can access VUC for a $35 fee.

Please note the Services and Activities Fee will not be charged for VUC until it is available to all eligible students free of charge.
