Each campus has a Health and Wellness Center to treat student illnesses, accidents, and personal or emotional needs. A registered nurse is available during posted hours on a non-appointment basis. Counselors are available during posted hours as well; a person who feels they are in crisis will be seen without an appointment on a walk-in basis by an available counselor. Health and Wellness Center records are kept strictly confidential.
