Health & Wellness

WPHPIMG_1085The mission of the Office of Student Health Services is to assist students with their health care needs. This goal includes:

1) Promoting wellness by offering learning opportunities for life-long health;

2) Providing assessment of acute illness or injury; and

3) Recommending follow-up treatment or referral as needed.

The Student Health Office, open 8:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday in The Hut, provides a registered nurse who makes referrals for students who require counseling from a licensed professional counselor or medical care from a physician. The physician and/or hospital fees are the responsibility of the student.

So that we can serve your needs and ensure the safety of all members of the Huntingdon community, each full-time student is required to submit health information during the enrollment process. Please be sure to complete the required forms on the Enrollment Forms and Information page.

The Office of Student Health Services, located in The Hut, is open Mondays through Fridays, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., during the academic year. The office is staffed by Ms. Camilla Irvin, director of Student Health Services, who provides testing, flu shots, over-the-counter medications, doctor referrals, and other referrals.

Important Information about Student Insurance:
Students enrolled in 12 credit hours or more in any one semester are required to submit health insurance documentation. Students are required to comply with any and all federal and/or state laws regarding the maintenance of health insurance. Students are strongly urged to have medical, accident, hospitalization and health insurance from a reputable provider. Huntingdon College is not responsible for students’ health-related expenses. Information regarding health insurance is available in the Office of Student Health and Wellness.

Note:  Students who take special medication or who are allergic to medication are strongly urged to wear medical identification warning bracelets.
