Health Services

The mission of VCSU’s Student Health Services is to help each student achieve maximum physical health so that each student can participate fully in the educational and personal growth opportunities offered at VCSU.

Health Services are provided free of charge to all students enrolled at VCSU. These services include dispensing over-the-counter medications for minor illnesses, assessing and treating minor injuries, providing medical supplies as needed and making referrals to local medical clinics when indicated. Smoking Cessation Counseling is also available as VCSU is a tobacco free campus.

The Health Services Office is located on the first floor of Mythaler Hall and is staffed by a Registered Nurse. Office hours are 9am-12pm, Monday through Friday. Appointments can be made by email or a phone call, but walk-ins are always welcome.

In general, all communication between you and the nurse is confidential. No information about you will be released outside of the Health Services without your permission. The EXCEPTIONS to confidentiality include:

  • The nurse determines you are a threat to yourself or another person.
  • There is a medical emergency.
  • Records are subpoenaed in the court of law.
