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.
Students should go to an Emergency Room if they need to be seen by a medical provider after hours. Nearby Emergency Rooms are located in Hornell, NY at St. James Mercy and Wellsville, NY at Jones Memorial Hospital.
All full-time students must pay a mandatory health fee. This fee covers services provided at the Student Health Centers including treatment, and prescriptive and non-prescriptive medicines.

The mission of the Health and Wellness Services Team is to promote a holistic, integrated understanding of individual health in which students learn to value the importance of finding harmony in mind, body, and spirit as it relates to their well-being. Our intention is to empower students to achieve their educational goals by establishing meaningful interpersonal relationships, engaging in civic responsibility, and learning how to make positive, healthy choices in their personal lives.
