Health Services provides services for enrolled students.For Fall semesters, last date of service is the Friday before winter break. For Spring semesters, last date of service is graduation. ** After the day of Commencement graduated students are no longer eligible for services. ** During summer students are only eligible for care if enrolled in summer classes, working on-campus, doing research, and/or living on-campus. A student living in the Saratoga area is not eligible for services unless one of the previously stated requirements are met.
In order to better serve students and provide a safe environment for everyone, we ask you to schedule an appointment in advance rather than walk in to be seen. We can usually offer same or next-day appointments and we will do our best to make sure you are seen as quickly as possible.
