The Health and Wellness Center provides a clinic where students may report to the nurse for limited routine services. The nurse is available to provide instruction and education on a broad range of student needs. Students are encouraged to participate in their own health care. Health promotion activities, such as the Health and Wellness Fair, are held throughout the school year.
A local medical practice offers non-emergency care to resident students by self-initiation or arrangement through the college nurse. In case of serious illness or emergency, appropriate medical personnel are consulted. All resident students are required to submit a certificate of medical examination and proof of immunizations prior to enrollment.
All resident students must participate in a medical insurance program. Proof of insurance is generally presented at registration. Residential and commuter students may purchase the college sponsored plan at the time of registration. International students living on campus are required to participate in the college sponsored insurance program. Commuter students participating in either intercollegiate or intramural athletics must have proof of medical insurance.
Physical examinations are required for all students who play intercollegiate sports. In addition, the College’s Health and Accident Insurance Program or a comparable policy must cover all students who participate in either intercollegiate or intramural athletics.
