Do I need an appointment?

It is recommended that you contact us for an appointment so that you will have a minimal waiting time. It is also helpful if  you complete consent forms prior to your appointment.   If you are scheduled for Mental Health Counseling please complete the attached Mental Health Consent forms and bring them completed if possible to your first appointment. 

Program Physicals such as EMT, Dental Assistant, Dental Hygiene, CNA etc. have specific times for scheduling, for additional information please contact the health center directly.

How is the Student Health Center funded?

The health center is funded by the student health fee paid by all students at the time of registration.

What about confidentiality?

The Health Center follows the HIPPA guidelines. It is against the law for employees or student worker staff to discuss or release your medical information without your written consent.

All medical and personal counseling records are confidential with legal restraints. The records are NOT part of the student's academic records. Information will not be released without the student's consent.
