UH Students

All currently enrolled students at the University of Houston are eligible for clinical services at CAPS. Initial Consultation (ICON) appointments are always free for currently enrolled UH Students.


Summer Eligibility

UH Students enrolled in any summer session are eligible for CAPS services.

Exception: Students who are enrolled in the upcoming semester are eligible for 1 semester prior to when they begin classes. They need to pay the following fees:

  • $20 coverage fee (prorated to $10 if they begin services at the start of Summer Session II).
  • $25 Individual Counseling Fee (instead of the standard fee rate).
  • All other services are charged at our standard fee rates.

New and Transfer Students

Students must be currently enrolled at the University of Houston and paying student services fees in order to receive services at CAPS. Proof of enrollment will be required in the form of a registered class schedule at the time the student presents for the Initial Consultation.


Students on Medical Withdrawal

In some cases, a client who medically withdraws from UH may continue receiving CAPS services for up to one semester following the semester in which the medical withdrawal was granted. In these cases, the student’s prognosis should indicate that their concerns can be addressed in brief individual or group counseling and that they are actively engaged and committed to their treatment plan.

Medical Withdrawal students need to pay the following fees:

  • $20 coverage fee (prorated to $10 if they begin services at the start of Summer Session II).
  • $25 Individual Counseling Fee (instead of the standard fee rate).
  • All other services are charged at our standard fee rates.

UH Faculty and Staff

Current UH employees are eligible for Initial Consultation and Treatment Planning sessions after which referrals can be made to a community agency. See current fee schedule.
