The Rowan University Student Health Center offers most services at no charge as we are supported, in part, by student fees. Evaluation by a physician or nurse practitioner, some medication and treatment, and/or referral for illnesses or injuries are offered to all matriculated University students currently attending classes. The Student Health Center does not take the place of a primary care physician.
We offer certain medications, lab testing and immunizations for a low cost. After paying for these services, you may request a receipt which can be submitted for reimbursement from your health insurance company. We also offer clearance physical examinations and PPD Tuberculosis (Mantoux) testing for a charge. The Student Health Center accepts cash, check, Boro Bucks, Visa, Discover and Master Card as forms of payment.
If a medication or treatment is required that is not in our formulary, you will be required to purchase them on your own. You are also responsible for laboratory, radiology or specialty referrals and treatments. If a student requires additional services, local physicians, dentists and other providers are available off-campus. Check with your insurance provider FIRST to find a physician who is a preferred provider.
Intercollegiate sports physicals are provided to all students after their primary physician completes their initial physical form.
We also provide information and educational brochures with regard to health promotion, a variety of illnesses, or injury. We sponsor monthly health promotion initiatives throughout the year. You may also receive personal counseling, including individual, group and couples counseling or psychotherapy at no charge through Counseling and Psychology Services at 256-4222.
We are excited to announce that students may receive acupuncture therapy at our new Wellness Center. In partnership with the Neuromuscular Institute at RowanSOM, students may participate in acupuncture therapy.
