Licensed, certified Nurse Practitioners assess and treat health problems of full-time undergraduate students. Services offered by Student Health Services (SHS) are covered by undergraduate tuition, you do not need to purchase the school health insurance plan in order to receive care.
Routine visits to SHS are free for full-time undergraduate students. Additional costs for certain services may apply, and are charged to the student’s health insurance. Services that are generally charged to your insurance include:
X-ray and radiology services
Clinic visits at SHS are by appointment, and most appointments can be arranged within one business day. Appointments can be made online or by calling the office. To schedule online, please use the online Patient Wellness Portal, call the office at 508-767-7329 to make an appointment. (Annual physical exams and immunizations are not available through SHS. Students obtain those services through their Primary Care Provider outside of school.)
All clinical services are strictly confidential.
