Health services include sick visits, physicals, gynecological visits and more. The staff considers a student’s diet, exercise, lifestyle, environment and mental health before suggesting a path to wellness. The nurse practitioners work in collaboration with a physician. Referrals are given as needed.

Appointments are preferred for health services and non-crisis counseling services. Walk-ins are accepted depending on availability.

Verification of Medical Illness Policy

The Wellness Center does not provide documentation of student medical illness/injury. A copy of this policy does not excuse a student from class.

Students who miss class due to illness/injury are encouraged to notify their faculty directly, preferably before missing a class. Most faculty members accept your word that you have a legitimate reason for missing class, an exam or an assignment deadline. All decisions about the impact of your absence on your grade, as well as any arrangements for making up work, rest with your professor.

Illness varies greatly among individuals. We expect students to take a reasonable and responsible approach to their academic responsibilities while keeping in mind the public health and safety of themselves and others.

Copies of this policy may be given to the student upon request.


All consultations and referrals are kept confidential and private in accordance with state and federal guidelines. Information obtained in counseling and health services will not be shared with anyone without the student’s written consent, except when a student is in danger of harming themselves or others.
