Students Policy:
A Nurse Practitioner (NP) is available Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30-4:30. Appointments are strongly encouraged, but walk-ins will be accepted based on staff availability.

Objective:
We understand that students have busy class schedules. Health Services staff strive to see everyone in a timely manner and minimize any inconvenience. Each student is treated equally and is provided the appropriate time to treat their individual condition.

Procedure:
In the case that an emergency situation occurs, appointments and walk-ins may be rescheduled.

  • We will make every attempt to avoid delays in the timeliness of appointments but there may be occasions where appointments are delayed.
  • Appointment cancelations should be at least least 24 hours in advance. Early cancellations give other students the opportunity to utilize that available time slot.
  • We expect students to arrive on time for their scheduled appointment. Please note that there is a possibility your appointment will need to be rescheduled if you arrive more than 10 minutes late.
  • If the NP or one of the nurses needs to reschedule your appointment, we will make a reasonable attempt to provide 24 hours’ notice to the student.
  • Health Services cannot provide excuses for missed classes. Students who miss classes due to illness are responsible for communicating the reason for their absence with their instructors.
  • Appointments can be made with Health Services; in person, by phone, email or through secure message in the health portal.

  • Although we will do our best to provide you with our medical opinion if asked, we strongly encourage you to follow up with your PCP and communicate with them the information or treatment that you received from us.
  • Treatment at Health Services is not meant to replace care provided by your PCP, or for management of chronic health conditions.
