Student Health Services (SHS) provides walk-in appointments for students who have urgent medical needs. The charge for the service is $15.00. A walk-in patient will be seen by a Registered Nurse who will assess the medical needs of the patient. If it is determined that the patient has an urgent medical need, the Registered Nurse will refer the patient to one of the Student Health Services providers. If it is determined by the Registered Nurse that the medical condition is not urgent, treatment recommendation(s) will be provided. A walk-in patient may experience an extended wait time depending on the number of walk-in patients in the reception area.
Student Health Services (SHS, MCAPS & HEO) will be closed as of May 17th until August 26, 2013. All incoming freshman for Fall 2013, must submit their Entrance Forms by the 1st of August 2013.
