Getting the Care You Need
If you need physical health care, walk in during the Center during Health Services hours.
If you need counseling support:
- Call 724-223-6107 to schedule an appointment
- Drop in and see us in person
- Go to the Student Health and Counseling Services MyW&J to schedule an appointment or for more mental health resources
Our primary focus is to provide access to health assessments and access to medical care for all W&J College students and promote your wellbeing. The Student Health Services Center provides short-term, solution-focused, outpatient care. If you need care beyond the scope of the services our Center typically provides, we will work with you to find medical care and treatment through local community providers qualified to meet your needs and develop treatment plans in collaboration with those providers.
College Medical Requirements
To ensure the health and wellness of the whole community, you must complete a College Medical Form and provide a Physical Evaluation Form from your family physician verifying a recent physical exam and an up-to-date immunization history. Your immunization documentation must include the dates of these three required immunizations:

A booster dose is required if you received your initial dose before to age 16. If you were immunized after age 16, only a single dose required.
IF YOU HAVE NOT MET THIS CRITERIA, YOU MUST SIGN THE DECLINATION ON THE ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF MENINGITIS VACCINE INFORMATION FORM.
