Student Health Center Services

Please note that we do not provide services or treatment for chronic pain, but we are happy to help you find a pain management specialist.

Allergy Shots: Allergy injections prescribed by a private health care practitioner may be given at the Student Health Center under limited circumstances. You must supply and maintain your own antigenic extract, and provide written instructions from your allergist. Allergy injections are given during specific hours, and appointments are necessary. We cannot store extract in the center.

CLASS EXCUSES: Class attendance policies are determined by individual faculty members. The Student Health Center can provide written verification if you have seen one of our health care providers.

Appointments: Students are encouraged to call ahead for appointments at 255-4444. We do not have "walk-in" appointments hours, but we do offer a limited amount of same day appointments for acute care visits.

CHARGES: The clinic is a fee for service clinic. An office visit fee will be charged based on the complexity of the visit. Additional charges may apply for tests or medications. Examples of charges:

  • Level 1: Limited Office Visit .........................$30
  • Level 2: Intermediate Office Visit ..................$40
  • Level 3: Complex Office Visit .......................$50
  • Any labs or tests ordered will incur an additional cost.  Please note that charges are subject to change at anytime and there may be additional charges for collection of blood and/or specimen. For example, a $5 blood draw charge.
