Health Services supports the mission of the college. It provides a climate of learning and living by helping students remove health barriers that interfere with their academic, personal and social education. A Physician or Nurse Practitioner is available Monday-Friday for medical visits, various clinical services, and health education. There are no clinic hours during the summer and winter breaks. Students registered for six or more credits are eligible to use Health Services.

All in office medical visits and services are free of charge. Students do not need to have private health insurance or be enrolled in the College-sponsored health insurance plan to be seen at Health Services. Students assume financial responsibility for all outside medical services such as visits to specialists, prescription drugs, ambulance transportation, emergency room visits, and laboratory work sent off campus.
