Our integrated center offers medical, mental health, psychiatric, and health promotion services led by collaborative medical professionals and staff. We strive to meet the individual needs of each student by providing confidential health and counseling services and referring them to appropriate community resources if needed.

All students are welcome to use the Health & Counseling Center where most services are offered free of charge or at a nominal fee. A student’s health insurance does not impact their access to these on-campus services.
