Students who are unable to attend class for a substantial length of time due to a severe illness or injury should contact the Student Health Center regarding their eligibility for medical excused withdrawal (EW). Verifiable documentation of circumstances will be required.

Optional Health Insurance and Optional Dental Insurance applications are accessible either on our website or at our Student Health Center location.
College-related student accidents need to be reported within 72 hours of occurrence. It is the student’s responsibility to report the accident to an instructor, college staff, or directly to the Student Health Center. All student accident reports and insurance claims are processed through the Student Health Center. The Student Health Center will help students complete accident report, insurance claims, and will answer any questions.
