Multi-disciplinary care, centered on OSU's transgender students.

We are committed to providing holistic care to meet the needs of all students while striving to reduce health inequities.

We work closely with our colleagues in Counseling and Psychological Services to provide multi-disciplinary care that is centered on the complex needs of OSU's transgender students.

Student Health Services (SHS)

Services
  • Hormonal therapy and referrals to specialists. Visits to SHS primary care clinicians are fully covered by the OSU Health Fee.
  • Comprehensive preventative services for people of all genders (including PAP smears and age-appropriate prostate exams).
  • Information forms for feminizing medications (PDF) and for testosterone therapy (PDF) to review benefits and side-effects.
  • Hormonal injections, as well as all immunizations.*
  • Lab tests to monitor hormonal therapy.*
Insurance
Pharmacy
  • Hormonal therapies in addition to a full array of medications. The pharmacy will also bill students’ insurance plans.

*The OSU Health Fee does not cover lab, immunization nor injection fees. However, SHS can bill most insurance carriers for these services. Whether and what insurance companies will reimburse varies from plan to plan. Please visit the links to the OSU-sponsored plans above for more specific information about coverage by those plans.

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

SHS encourages students to work with a counselor if they are wishing to embark on transitioning.

Counselors are qualified to provide any letters that may be recommended or required for treatment.

Counselors provide support for students who are questioning their gender identity, experiencing gender dysphoria, or transitioning. Their goal is to provide an open, supportive and confidential environment for you to address issues that are concerning you.

The following forms of counseling are available:
