During the fall and spring semesters, Student Health has extended hours Monday through Thursday 8 a.m. until 7 p.m.; Friday hours are 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Summer hours are 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Student Health Services provides primary care including assessment, diagnosis and treatment of acute illness and ongoing care for chronic conditions such as asthma, diabetes and high blood pressure. We also provide family planning services, including annual gynecological exams and pap smears, as well as low cost birth control options, emergency contraception, and screening for sexually transmitted infections. We offer tuberculosis screening and all the state required vaccines. In the fall, flu shots are offered for students. Students needing allergy shots can receive them for a nominal fee at Student Health, but the first shot must be given at the allergist's office.
Most routine lab work is performed in our own clinical laboratory. Lab tests performed on site are covered by the semester health fee. It may be necessary to refer some tests to an outside laboratory. Fees are charged for lab tests sent off campus to our reference laboratory, but are generally lower than community standard (see fee schedule).
Students are currently referred off campus to outpatient xray facilities in the local community. These xrays are usually billed to the student's insurance by the facility performing the xrays.
