A physician is on campus regularly to provide medical services. Counseling interns provide short term psychological services.
What Services are Free . . . When You Pay a Health Fee?
The health fee you pay at the time of registration is a state mandated fee.
The only waivers are for those students who are members of a religious organization which relies solely on prayer for purposes of healing.
Services are provided only to current students who have paid the health fee and are currently attending classes.
The Health and Wellness staff consists of registered nurses, physicians, a supervising psychologist, psychological interns and health office assistants each of whom strives to meet your medical and psychological needs and make your visit to the Center a positive one. All information remains absolutely confidential. For ANY medical concern, see us first…if we can't help, we will direct you to a resource that can. Come and check us out!
