• Either call 304.367.4155 or walk in. The Nurse Practitioner is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. and 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. The Health Service is located in the Falcon Center, 3rd floor.
  • Valid student ID required. Students with urgent need will be seen first. Students should be patient and realize that some waiting may be necessary. Referrals to outside health care providers or local medical facilities will be made when deemed necessary.
  • There is no additional charge above the Health Service Fee for services provided in the center. We do not bill insurance. If x-rays are ordered or lab tests beyond what we offer on-site are ordered, these are at the student’s expense. Every effort is made to provide the best, most costeffective care.
  • See our student health insurance page for possible coverage information.

Health Service Mission

The Mission of the Student Health Service is to enhance the educational process by modifying or removing health related barriers to learning and by promoting an optimal level of wellness.

Our goal is not only to treat illness and injury, but also to provide educational programming in Health Promotion. Early care of acute illness and a healthy lifestyle can prevent serious illness, reduce time lost from classes, and keep students looking and feeling well.

Prevention is the key to health, and the primary tool of prevention is health education. Self- responsibility is nurtured through the educational component of each encounter with the goal of developing a clientele that is increasingly independent and able to manage their own health needs to the extent possible.
