We are here to serve the student body of Mount Vernon Nazarene University. Our office sees students on a walk in basis. You may call ahead and schedule a time to be seen, as well. We offer assessment and consultation for illness and injury, referral to local physicians and other providers, arrangements for transportation if needed, health education, and administration of allergy shots.

Our office keeps on hand a supply of over the counter medications and first aid supplies commonly used for self-care. There is no fee for students to be seen in our office or for self-care supplies. We also respond to emergencies and other urgent needs.

We coordinate claims processing for student health insurance and are available to assist students with any insurance related questions or difficulties and application for financial assistance of unpaid bills. 

Your medical history form is maintained in a personalized file in our office and retained for seven years after you leave MVNU. You may request information from this form by contacting our office.
