Dear Prospective Students:

     Thank you for visiting Student Health! You will see by exploring our pages that we provide many services for you, including twenty-four hour seven day inpatient and outpatient nursing care during the fall, winter, and spring semesters whenever the residence halls are open (weekday hours during Summer and Spring Break), practitioners and nurse practitioners on-site daily and available by telephone to the nursing staff whenever Student Health is open, a Gynecology Clinic for women which offers annual exams including Pap smears (thin preps) as well as treatment of many gynecological problems, an Allergy/Immunization Clinic, a Sports Medicine Center which is available to NCAA athletes and to all students by referral from a Student Health practitioner, Nutrition Services, Clinical Lab, X-ray Services (billed to your insurance), and a Dispensary which you may elect to use for common pharmaceuticals and orthopedic supplies ordered by a Student Health practitioner.

     All full-time students pay a health fee. Part-time matriculated students may elect to pay the health fee or fee for service. This fee will provide you with unlimited visits to our practitioners and nurse practitioners, all in-house laboratory work, all inpatient care in our infirmary, gynecology services including annual exams and Pap smears (thin preps), nutrition services, visits to our Sports Medicine Clinic, many immunizations and administration of allergy injections using serum provided by your allergist. The health fee also covers services offered by the Center for Counseling and Student Development ! There are separate fees for x-rays, most medications and orthopedic supplies, and some immunizations. Part-time matriculated students may elect to pay the health fee or fee for service. The University also sponsors a sickness and accident insurance plan at a reasonable cost if you do not have health insurance coverage. Insurance coverage is recommended to cover services which are not provided by Student Health. This coverage or equivalent domestic coverage is required for international students. We look forward to seeing you if you visit campus. Stop by and visit us at Laurel Hall, located at the south end of the Green!
