Please allow sufficient time to wait when you come to the Health Center.

What services are available at the Health Center?

We diagnose and treat minor, acute illness such as colds, upper respiratory infections, urinary tract infections, and skin conditions. We are able to counsel women on their family planning options. We maintain a stock of commonly used over-the-counter medications to dispense to patients. We have a variety of lab tests in the clinic such as tests for Strep throat and urine pregnancy tests. There is a small charge for these items.

If you need more intensive or specialized care, we can refer you to resources for this care. Any costs associated with health care outside of the Student Health Center is the responsibility of the patient.

Who has access to my medical records?

Information will not be released without your written consent except in cases of legal subpoenas and some communicable diseases, which by law, must be reported to the Department of Public Health.
