• Health & Wellness

  • We provide medical, psychological, and wellness support services to our students year-round. The mission of our Student Health and Support Services is to enhance the health and well-being of students to foster their learning and success.

    Counseling Services

    Sometimes you need to talk to someone who will listen in a supportive and nonjudgmental manner. Our counselors are here to help clarify issues, explore feelings, and discuss problem-solving strategies. We also offer group counseling sessions.

    Medical Services

    Student Health Services provides treatment for illnesses and injuries, gynecological consultation and treatment, prescriptions, medications, immunizations , and other preventive services. Students who pay the per-semester fee can access care at no additional charge. Appointments can be scheduled, or students can walk in during designated walk-in hours .

    Health Insurance

    The Student Health Insurance Plan is an integral part of the university's goal of promoting the well-being of our students. All eligible students are automatically charged the required health fees and enrolled in the health insurance plan at registration.

    HIV/AIDS Prevention & Services
