Alcohol and other drug assessments are also available for currently enrolled UWRF students through UWRF Counseling Services (a fee is charged for sanctioned assessments)

Appointment Cancellation and No-Show Policy: A no-show is someone who misses an appointment without cancelling. If a student has two no-show appointments in any semester, they need to talk directly with their counselor about options for their future care prior to rescheduling which will likely include referral off campus. A pattern of repeated cancellations, three of more in a semester, will indicate to the counselor the need to limit appointment frequency and/or consider a referral of services.

Where can I go for contraception, safer sex supplies, and STD testing and treatment? Certain clinical health services are covered for UWRF students by Student Health Services through Pierce County Reproductive Health in River Falls, 1234 S. Wasson Lane, River Falls.
