Student Health Services

The Student Health and Wellness Center serves students, faculty, staff, and the community. The student health facility is open and staffed by a nurse on a regular basis. In addition, a doctor is at the health center to see students at specified hours each week.

The college health services are maintained by student fees and all students are entitled to health services at no additional cost. These services include access to nurses and a physician. A charge may be assessed to the student for diagnostics, medical durables, or some medications. These charges may be paid directly by the student or billed to the student’s account.

Expenses for outside consultation and treatment are the responsibility of the student in all cases when not covered by insurance. Students are required to show proof of medical insurance. Students who do not have coverage are encouraged to seek coverage on their own.

All students are required to submit a completed physical and medical history, including immunization dates, before matriculation.

Bethany College strives to educate and provide services for its students on alcohol and other substance use and abuse issues. These efforts are continually refined and improved based on national research, trends, and current information. These efforts are under the leadership of the Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students in coordination with the Health and Wellness Services Staff, Counseling Staff and off-campus certified Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselors. Efforts include community-wide educational workshops, support groups, and intervention for those in jeopardy.
