Student Health Services

The Student Health Services Office is located in Galloway Hall. A registered nurse is available during the day for consultation and treatment Monday through Friday. Residential Health Advisors (RHA) are available to assist students after hours and on weekends. Students access RHAs by calling campus extension 1811 after clinic hours.

Visits to the physician and hospital emergency room must be arranged through the Student Health Services staff if the student health insurance is to participate in financial coverage, otherwise the student is responsible for payment of medical bills. Insurance claims are initiated in the Student Health Services Office. Brochures describing the student health program are distributed annually to students.

Students who are absent from classes for reasons of illness or injury must report to the Student Health Services Office before missing a class. Students must also contact faculty members prior to missing class.
