Student Life

Health Center

The Health Center is a full service primary care office open to students when the College is in session. The College’s Health Service offers a wide range of medical and counseling services to all matriculated undergraduates. A detailed description of the services and fees can be found on the Health Center website:

Outpatient primary care medical services include urgent care, nursing visits, routine laboratory work, same day appointments, and routine gynecologic services. There is no charge for doctor, nurse practitioner or nurse visits. No student is ever denied needed care due to an inability to pay.

The counseling service is available to all undergraduate students. There is no charge for the first six visits each academic year. There is a fee for subsequent visits most of which is covered by insurance if the student submits the necessary paperwork. No student is ever denied needed service because of an inability to pay, and finances should never be a barrier to seeking care. Consultation with a counselor or psychiatrist can be arranged by appointment by calling the main number of the Health Center. Those with a serious urgent problem that cannot wait for an appointment can come to the Health Center for an evaluation at any time.

All entering students must file completed medical history and evaluation forms with Health Services before registration for classes.

The College purchases a medical insurance policy for full-time undergraduate students to assure no student is denied necessary medical care. The insurance is provided in conjunction with services supplied by the Bryn Mawr College Health Center. It is to be used as a secondary policy in conjunction with the student’s primary insurance. Therefore students should maintain their coverage on their families’ health plans. Information about the basic insurance plan and any available additional plans is sent to students each summer.

A student may at any time request a medical leave of absence for reasons of health. For information on leaves of absence, see Departure from the College prior to Graduation in the Academic Regulations.
