We encourage an appointment to best make use of students' time. Please call the Student Health Center for an appointment at 269-337-7200, visit us in Hicks Center, or schedule online (coming soon). To provide the best quality healthcare, appointments can last 20-45 minutes, please plan accordingly.  If you cannot keep your appointment, please call and cancel the appointment as soon as possible so that another student may be seen.  Failure to keep an appointment without prior notification may result in a charge to your student account.

Walk-ins: We will try to see you in a timely manner when you do not have a scheduled appointment. We do not guarantee that you will be seen on the same day that you walk in. Students with a scheduled appointment will receive priority.

Class Excuse: Student Health Services does not provide medical excuses for missed classes, exams, or assignments since medical conditions are confidential and frequently not verifiable.  This policy is based on our limited resources, which are better dedicated to providing health care; the inability for us to make valid determinations about illnesses or injuries students may have effectively managed through self-care; and our commitment to student privacy.  We suggest that students dialogue with faculty members regarding their circumstances for missed classes or assignments.

This policy is consistent with the recommendations of the American College Health Association and is similar to other colleges and universities.  It is respectful of students and their responsibilities, promotes trust among students and faculty and allows students more time to devote to their studies.

Confidentiality: We can not discuss your health issues with anyone without your written permission. No access to health records by others is allowed without the student's written permission and no phone information is released without the student's signed consent (Records Release). This includes receipts from visits.
