Need to Know Information for Students

Need to Know Information for Students

  • Immunization records must be returned to the University Health Center (UHC) prior to matriculation. Orientation is a great time to turn this in. You will not be able to register for the next semester's classes until your immunization compliance is verified.
  • The University Health Center is open from 8 a.m.-5 p.m Monday through Friday. If you are sick, hurt or have any health issue, call or stop by to make an appointment to see us.
    • Only you can make an appointment to see us. Appointments are encouraged. We accept walk-ins and will make every effort to provide timely access to care. 
    • University Health Center (UHC) is not an Emergency Department if you have a medical emergency call 911
    • If you feel you need to be seen for a non-emergency when we are closed and you cannot wait until we are open again you can go to:
      • Centra Southside Community Hospital Emergency Department
      • Centra Medical Group
      • Primary Care Provider
      • Urgent Care Center
  • All visits are confidential. There is no blanket release form for any medical information. If you want us to share information with your family you must sign a release form for that visit only.
  • There is no charge for copays related to your office visits.  Your Insurance will be billed.  You should have a copy of your health insurance information if prescriptions, lab tests, or referrals are needed. Please notify staff if you do not what a claim to go to your insurance company or you are uninsured.
  • You will be seen by a Provider who can prescribe medications you require. 
  • If you take medications regularly, you alone are responsible for them. You should consider having a lockbox for them in your room. The only personal medication kept at the University Health Center is Allergy serum administered by University Health Center.
  • We recommend that you bring a first-aid/self-care kit to school. For suggestions check out the Student Survival Kit page.
