The Mission of Hardin-Simmons University Student Health is to provide free health care and health education. Appropriate care, education and resources are given to the student to meet the needs of the total person- physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
The university maintains an outpatient clinic staffed by a registered nurse. The Student Health Office/Clinic is located in Moody Center, room 208.
Hours of Operation:
Free treatment at the clinic includes first aid, assessment and treatment of minor ailments and dispensing of nonprescription medications. The university does not supply prescription drugs or personal nursing care.
What are the Options when the Student Health Office is not Open?
In the event a student is ill or in need of medical advice and the university nurse is not available, the student has the following options:
Residential students should notify the residence hall director if they need assistance contacting a health care provider
If you need to request a copy of your immunizations, please complete the Request for Release of Medical Records and return to the nurse @ HSU Box 16150 or fax 325-671-2186 or scan and email to firstname.lastname@example.org
What student insurance is available?
It is important for students to have their health insurance card to facilitate any need for medical attention. For students who do not have insurance coverage and who wish it, the nurse has some websites that list a few college health insurance companies.
It is the policy of Hardin-Simmons University that our international student population has health insurance to provide for their healthcare needs. Additionally, HSU wants to protect our students from compromising their financial status and their education. Therefore, international students will be automatically enrolled into the HSU insurance plan. The insurance fee will be added to the student’s account at the start of each enrolled semester. The only exception is if the student already has an insurance plan that is comparable to the HSU plan, the student may submit proof of insurance that shows coverage throughout the semester enrolled. The student will need to submit this to the University Nurse, Moody Center, room 208 and sign a waiver by the fifth class day.
