IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

During this time of the pandemic, Student Health Services is meeting with students via telephone and video conferencing (AKA "telehealth") as well as face-to-face visits depending on the individual need of the student. All appointments are scheduled by calling our office number at 478-445-5288 and speaking with our office staff. 

We are currently providing rapid COVID testing for those students who have symptoms as well as all other usual services provided by the clinic, including influenza (flu) testing. Remember, it is not to late to get your influenza (flu) vaccine if you have not yet done so.  If you are uncertain about what kind of services we offer or what type appointment you may need, please call Student Health at 478-445-5288 to have your questions answered. 

Please watch FrontPage announcements for more information regarding continued efforts to keep our campus healthy and safe during this novel Coronavirus.  

Anyone experiencing emergencies should seek help immediately by calling 911 or Georgia College Public Safety at 478-445-4400.
