Due to the pandemic. Please call over to the health center before coming over 267-502-6070. We will be happy to assist you with your needs. If someone does not answer right away leave your name and number and we call you as soon as possible to schedule a visit.
It is required all students have health insurance during enrollment in the College. Students from outside the immediate area are urged to contact their insurance benefits administrator to learn how their insurance covers them while they are in college. If you are a citizen of the United States and are not currently covered by health insurance, we advise you to visit the healthcare.gov website. If you live in Pennsylvania, visit COMPASS, an online tool for PA residents to search for a plan that may work for you. The College does not offer a health insurance plan for students. International students are encouraged to purchase an international student plan that may meet their needs. The following is a link to one of many international student health care plans: International Student Insurance. If you have any other questions please feel free to contact health services directly.
Due to the pandemic counseling services will be virtual this year. Virtual appointments can be scheduled by calling the counselors office phone. If they do not answer leave your name and number and they will call you back to schedule a virtual visit as soon as possible. Virtual visits can be scheduled Monday through Friday.

Health Center staff are happy to discuss health, nutrition, addictions, and other areas of concern for students. If we don’t offer a specific service, we can help you find out who does.
