The Student Health Center is located in the Wellness Center in Carter Hall on the ground floor. The goal of the Student Health Services department is to provide high-quality health care to our students; to direct students to other health care providers when appropriate; to provide emergency care for all members of the University community; to address the specific health needs of those members of the student population with special problems; and to conceive, develop and implement relevant health education programs for the University community. All students must complete a pre-entrance health form that is kept on file. All medical records are strictly confidential.
The Student Health Center is open 24 hours a day, with the exception of limited hours on the weekends, when the University is in session. A staff of registered nurses is on duty during operating hours. A physician and certified nurse practitioner are on duty Monday through Friday during specified hours. The RN/physician/CRNP may refer students to local hospitals in emergencies and for treatment beyond the capabilities of the Student Health Center. The Student Health Center does not assume responsibility for doctor bills, hospital bills or prescription costs accrued by the students for treatment beyond the capabilities of the Student Health Center. The final choice in hospital selection is the student's decision.
