Prescriptions

Prescriptions issued by SHS can be filled at any local pharmacy at the student's expense. Students may contact their insurance companies to see if and where prescriptive privileges exist. Students & parents are encouraged to speak with their insurance companies prior to illness so they know where to go should the need arise.  Some prescriptions issued by Student Health Services providers can filled in the office for an additional charge.

Insurance

Students are urged to carry health insurance coverage although insurance coverage is not mandatory. SHS does not endorse or sponsor a specific program but does maintain literature on a variety of insurance programs. Students interested in coverage may contact SHS.

Requirements

Prior to treatment in Student Health Services, each student is required to complete a health history questionnaire. Students, regardless of age, are required to provide  verification of up-to-date immunizations. Physical examinations are not required for admission to the University.

Confidentiality

All information received by SHS regarding a client's health is strictly confidential. Access to medical records is limited to authorized SHS personnel. Faculty and administration do not have access to medical records and will not be able to verify a student's visits to SHS without the student's permission. If the student is 18 years of age or older, the University cannot release information to his/her parents without the student's prior knowledge. Medical information is released only with the student's written consent or upon court-ordered subpoena.
