Health services are provided to students by a physician assistant and by a registered nurse. Services are available during clinic hours. The staff of Student Health Services provides presentations to the university community on a variety of wellness issues. The Health Center is located in West Hall and is open on a regular basis during the school year.

Students are encouraged to use the more cost effective student health services. Nursing services and physician assistant services are available to students at no cost. The physician assistant is available on a limited basis. His hours are posted in the Health Center. An appointment is necessary to see the P.A.

Flu shots are available beginning in September each year for a minimal charge at the Health Center.

We believe good health is essential to optimal success in college. Student health services provides treatment for acute illnesses, preventative health services, and health education.
