The Student Health Office is a safe, confidential place where students can receive limited primary care services including evaluation and treatment for common minor injuries and illnesses, preventive care, health education and referrals to local specialists or hospitals as needed.
The office is staffed by a Family Nurse Practitioner and Registered Nurses.
There are no fees for the services in the Student Health Office. Students are encouraged to contact the office to schedule an appointment. Walk-ins are accepted as space allows.
Emergencies always take priority.
