All students who are currently enrolled full-time are eligible for health services. Routine health care for most health issues from sinus infections to pap smears can be obtained at the Center for Student Health and Well-Being.
Outpatient visits with the nurse or the physician at the center are free of charge. The cost of in-house laboratory tests, supplies, procedures and certain medications are billed directly to the student's account through the Controller's Office. The college does not participate with private insurance plans.
Students can log on to their student health portal to print receipts from student health center visits for submission to their private health insurance for reimbursement.
