We encourage you to decide how you are going to provide for accidents or illnesses requiring visits to physicians, health clinics, or the hospital emergency room while you are a student here. You may be eligible to have coverage under your parent’s health insurance or purchase some other private health insurance while you are a student. As always, you have a Health Center on campus staffed by a certified nurse practitioner, Monday–Friday during normal business hours, for your health needs. No insurance is necessary to receive basic health-related services at the Health Center, and the visits cost only $10 at the time of service. However, if you are referred off campus for further lab testing, physician specialists, X-rays, etc., you will be responsible to pay for those services.
