Student Health Services provides acute medical care to all enrolled McNeese students. These services are intended to help students achieve and maintain sufficient physical health and wellness so that they are able to successfully fulfill their academic responsibilities and progress towards degree completion.

All currently enrolled McNeese students are eligible for treatment for no charge at the time of service. Registered nurses are on staff and available for walk-ins, but appointments are recommended to see a physician. Physician hours are 10:00 a.m. – noon every day.

Acute medical care is available for:

  • Respiratory/throat infections
  • Minor first aid
  • Vomiting/fever
  • Blood pressure checks
  • Diagnosis
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Ear infections
  • Skin infections/rashes
  • Muscle strains/sprains

Health Services is funded by the assessed student health fee that students pay each semester. All services are confidential, and no medical information can be released without a patient’s written permission. For minors (students under age 18), parental consent is required by law in order for any medical services to be rendered.

If you cannot attend your scheduled appointment for any reason, please call ahead to cancel. Two missed appointments will result in the loss of Health Services privileges for the rest of the semester.
