The Student Health Center offers flu vaccines during the flu season for a small fee that is billed to the students account. Please consider vaccination for your protection and the protection of those around you.
Remember: Hand washing is important to prevent infection. Wash your hands often.
Medical information that is required to be on file prior to enrollment includes:
Every full-time student is required to be covered by family insurance or the UnitedHealthcare Student Insurance the school offers. For more information about Student Health Insurance please contact the Business Office, 863.680.4154.
Medical care will be provided by an advanced registered nurse practitioner(ARNP) who is able to diagnose and treat common physical health problems and prescribe medications.
Students are asked to inform the Student Health Center of any health conditions or needs that may or may not be in their medical record. This insures proper treatment is given if a medical emergency occurs.
All health records are maintained strictly confidential and are securely filed. Information is released only when a student’s permission is given by written consent.
Several over-the-counter medications are available at the SHC at no cost to full time day students after evaluation by the registered nurse. We carry over-the-counter medicine to alleviate allergy symptoms, cough, chest and nasal congestion, fever, sore throat, runny nose, sinus pain and pressure, and heartburn.
The ARNP has the ability to write for prescription medications if indicated. Prescriptions may also be written and filled at local pharmacies.

During Fall and Spring semesters the Student Health Center (SHC) offers educational health programming to all students that promotes wellness, prevention, and self-awareness. The SHC strives to not only care for our patients but help students become knowledgeable healthcare consumers.
