Student Health Services

Student Health Services staff believes that:

  • Each student has the right to treatment with dignity by a professional medical staff that has experience in the care of college students.
  • The information that a student shares with us must be kept in confidence; it will not be shared without the student's permission.
  • A student should be given the opportunity to be a partner in his care and should be given choice of treatment options and of health care providers when such options are available.
  • A student should be given accurate, clear information regarding his health problem and prescribed treatment.
  • Students have the responsibility to be truthful about their concerns, to follow their prescribed treatment plan, and to ask questions.

HOURS
Student Health Services is open for clinic hours on a walk-in basis during the regular academic year (fall term and spring term) from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
