Information for New Students
|The WNMU Student Health and Counseling Center exists to affirm the clear role of health
and wellness in advancing academics. Our primary mission is to maintain
and contribute to a healthy and safe learning environment for the student
community. We are committed to providing high quality, inexpensive and
confidential primary care services in an accessible and efficient manner
which promotes maximum privacy and respect for individual as well as cultural
preferences. As health care providers, we promote wellness from a holistic
approach encompassing mind, body and spirit. We encourage the student
to make informed decisions about health related concerns and we empower
them to be self-directed and well informed consumers in an ever changing
health care system. The WNMU Student Health and Counseling Center does not process medical
insurance. Insured students will assume the responsibility of submitting
a claim to their insurance company when indicated.
Health insurance is recommended but not required. The University does not endorse a specific medical insurance carrier. The Health and Counseling Center can provide information on a limited number of carriers and it is up to the student to purchase his/her own coverage. Patient’s health information is protected by federal regulations. Absolutely no one can gain knowledge of your health information unless you give permission to do so. Although the University does not require documentation of vaccination for admission, it is recommended that each student provide a copy of their vaccination record to the Health and Counseling Center.
