At Student Health Services (SHS) you have access to visits with a nurse or a physician (limited hours available during the summer). Nurse visits are free. There is a charge for each medical provider’s visit. Procedures and medicines also have a separate charge. All charges are billed through Student Financial Services. You may use the extensive services that SHS offers regardless of your health insurance coverage.

SHS offers services and vaccinations for a low cost if you need assistance in completing these requirements. Any outstanding requirements will be communicated to you via your my.wheaton email.
