Wellness Center

Eligibility & Fees

 

Students currently attending classes (full or part time) are eligible to use the services provided at the Wellness Center at no charge. Wellness Center services are covered by Student Development Fee. Students who are not charged the Student Development Fee but would like to receive services must submit the Wellness Center Optional Enrollment form.

Students at the Health Science Campus (HSC) who are interested in receiving mental health or medical care can learn more about their options here.

Students are welcome to use the Wellness Center to maintain or improve their health. A fee for the Wellness Center is assessed at the beginning of the Fall and Spring semesters and appears on every student's bill as part of the student activity fee. This covers medical assessment and short-term treatment by a staff nurse, physician, or nurse practitioner; assessment and either brief counseling with a mental health professional at the Wellness Center or assistance connecting to a community mental health provider; telephone advice from a nurse; and health education and wellness programs and resources at the Wellness Center, including unlimited group therapy visits. Some lab tests, immunizations, prescription medications, and materials are provided for an additional fee.

Appointments must be cancelled by notifying the Wellness Center at least 3 hours in advance. The Wellness Center will assess a $15 No Show  fee for missed appointments.

Summer Services

 Updated 5/2021

Wellness Center services are available this summer, without an additional fee, to all students who are enrolled for either the Summer or the Fall.  While many direct services require that you reside in Illinois, nurses and counselors remain available for consultation to help you connect to needed care if you are out of state.
