Located near the Campus Safety headquarters, the Student Health & Wellness Center provides primary health care services, as well as health and wellness resources, to Whittier College residents and commuters. It also offers holistic services at affordable prices and free nutrition counseling.
The Student Health & Wellness Center is staffed throughout the academic year by multiple providers that hold rotating office hours Monday-Friday and see patients on an appointment-basis only. Walk-ins are welcomed on Monday mornings. The health center is also staffed by a full-time RN and LVN. During summer hours, there are no providers available solely an RN and/or an LVN is there to assist you on a reduced clinic schedule.
There is no charge for a visit, however, any medications prescribed, any in-house labs, vaccines, or procedures will incur a fee. The nurse or provider can inform you ahead of time of these fees. Although no health insurance is required to see one of our providers, it is required for lab testing or for other tests such as radiographic views (i.e. X-rays), or when seeing a specialist at an outside facility.
All Whittier College full time undergraduate students can use the services of the health center regardless of their insurance carrier. Doctor's appointments are free. There are nominal fees for medications.
A part-time student must be enrolled in at least six units (6) per semester to be eligible to use the health center. In addition, a student who wishes to use the health center and is part time, must pay a 75 dollar semester fee.
Graduate and Law Students
