Student Health Services
The school nurse, who is on duty Monday through Friday in the clinic located in the Recreation and Wellness Center, provides limited outpatient services for minor illnesses and injuries. If further treatment is necessary, she will refer the student to an urgent care facility located near the campus. Due to the limits on the health services provided by Southern Polytechnic State University, each student is encouraged to have adequate health and accident insurance through either a personal or family insurance policy. The University offers an optional medical insurance policy. Information is available at www.studentinsurance.com.
International students are required to have private health insurance protection. Southern Polytechnic State University is not responsible for any medical expenses incurred by international students beyond those that are covered by the Student Health Fee.
Immunization records are maintained in the Student Health Services Office. The required immunization form can be found on the SPSU web-site.
