Hours of Service:

Appointments and Primary Care

  • Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 8 a.m.–5 p.m.
  • Thursday 9 a.m.–5 p.m.

The Klotz Student Health Center (SHC) is dedicated to providing the highest quality health care to CSUN students and to the University Community. SHC services and educational programs are designed to help students maintain and improve their health and wellness so they can better achieve their academic and professional goals.

All SHC services are provided to currently matriculated students at little or no cost. Basic primary care provided by nurses, physicians and nurse practitioners is free. X-rays, lab tests performed in the SHC laboratory, health education, men’s and women’s specialists, nutrition counseling, podiatry, sports medicine, substance-use counseling/referral and smoking cessation counseling also are offered for free. For a nominal charge, the SHC also provides acupuncture, chiropractic, dentistry, dermatology, specialty gynecology, massage therapy, optometry, physical therapy, and travel and immunization services, as well as a full-service pharmacy for prescription and over-the-counter medications.

Treatment of Minors: CSUN students under the age of 18 must have a signed Consent for Medical Treatment of Minors prior to receipt of services. This form can be obtained at the Klotz Student Health Center or from the website. This requirement does not apply to emancipated minors who can document their status.

After-Hours Nurse Triage: After hours, evenings, weekends and University holidays, a free telephone nurse service (Fonemed) contracted by the Klotz Student Health Center can answer medical questions or direct currently enrolled students to open health-care resources at their own cost. (This service cannot make or cancel appointments with the Student Health Center, review immunization requirements, clear registration holds or address any non-medical questions, such as CSUN academic policies and procedures.) To reach Fonemed, call (877) 678-3999.

The Klotz Student Health Center does not have an emergency room.

For Emergency Care, please dial 911. Treatment at a hospital emergency room would be at the student’s expense. 24-hour emergency care on a fee-for-service basis is available at:

CSU Immunization Requirements

As instructed by the CSU Chancellor’s Executive Order 803, entering California State University (CSU) students are required to present proof of the following immunizations to the CSU campus they will be attending before the beginning of their first term of enrollment.

Measles and Rubella: All new and readmitted students born after January 1, 1957, must provide proof of full immunization against measles and rubella prior to enrollment.

Hepatitis B: All new students who will be 18 years of age or younger at the start of their firsts term at a CSU campus must provide proof of full immunization against Hepatitis B before enrolling. Full immunization against Hepatitis B consists of three timed doses of vaccine over a minimum period of four to six months. If you need further details or have special circumstances, consult the Klotz Student Health Center.

Meningococcal Disease Information: Each incoming freshman who will be residing in on-campus housing will be required to return a form indicating that they have received information about meningococcal disease and the availability of the vaccine to prevent contracting the disease, and indicating whether or not the student has chosen to receive the vaccination.

The above are not requirements for admission to the CSU, but are required of students as conditions of enrollment at any CSU campus.

Meningococcal Vaccine

College students (especially freshmen living in student housing) are at an increased risk for meningococcal disease. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends that college students understand the risks of meningococcal disease and the benefits of immunization. Students are encouraged to visit the SHC website for more detailed information about meningitis and to strongly consider getting the vaccinated. The vaccine is offered at cost at the Klotz Student Health Center.

Student Health Insurance

Students not covered by an individual, family, employer or other health insurance plan are strongly advised to purchase health insurance that will cover the costs of services beyond the scope of the Klotz Student Health Center (such as emergency services, hospitalization, maternity care and surgery). A low-cost health insurance plan, sponsored by Associated Students, is available for CSUN students to purchase. For more information and an application, visit

The Klotz Student Health Center is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. (AAAHC).
