Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

1.)   DO I HAVE TO PAY TO BE SEEN AT STUDENT HEALTH SERVICES?
There is no charge at time of service. Students pay an assessed "student health fee" each semester with their tuition, which allows the student to see the doctor as often as necessary and also to see the nurses for minor issues. 

2.)  DO I HAVE TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
 It is recommended that you make an appointment to see the SHS doctor, but walk-ins are seen if time allows.  No appointment is necessary to see a nurse.  The Student Health Service is staffed Monday -Friday from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm except on official university holidays.

3.)  WHAT SERVICES ARE OFFERED?
 The purpose of the Student Health Service is to keep the students well enough to ensure they can attend classes.  The doctors and nurses care for students with minor health issues such as respiratory infection, throat infections, nausea and vomiting, sinus and allergy problems, minor first aid, etc.

4.)  CAN I GET MY PRESCRIPTIONS FILLED AT THE STUDENT HEALTH SERVICES?
 There is no pharmacy at the Student Health Service.  If a student sees the doctor at the Student Health Service and a prescription is given, the student is responsible for purchasing it at a pharmacy of their choice.  Some over-the-counter medicines are available for a one-time dose.
