Health Services for Students

Student Health Services and University Counseling Center

Medical professionals are available to provide high-quality student health services on campus. They generally offer routine primary care type services that provide care and treatment of minor illnesses and injuries. When the needed care is more extensive, it is important to have medical insurance coverage that provides access to specialists and other inpatient and outpatient services. Please refer to the Student Health Services website for further details.
