Healthy Veterans Program- Services for UGA Military Veterans

Did you know?

If the VA is paying your tuition and fees, then in most cases, your university health fee is also paid. This means you get many Primary Care services at no additional cost to you, and you get access to a range of specialty clinics with special savings for military Vets.

The University Health Center (UHC) is a state-of-the-art outpatient facility designed to meet the health care needs of UGA students. UHC is fully accredited by the prestigious Joint Commission as a Primary Care Medical Home. The standard of health care delivery has earned the center its reputation as one of the top college health care facilities nationwide.

Healthy Veterans Program

The University Health Center offers UGA student veterans heavily discounted rates at UHC’s specialty health clinics. We call this initiative the Healthy Veterans Program.

Who can participate?

Student veterans who have paid their UHC health fees.
If you have questions regarding the health fee call 706-542-1162.
