The university is concerned for the health and well-being of each student. A registered nurse is on campus to treat minor illnesses or injuries, perform blood pressure checks, and make certain equipment loans for no charge. Visits for immunizations and other treatments will involve a fee. A physician and nurse practitioner are available nearby for consultation by appointment. Fees for their services may be placed on the student’s account. The emergency facilities of Washington Adventist Hospital, adjacent to the campus, are available to students.
To ensure that each student has adequate health care access in the event of an emergency or serious illness, WAU’s Health Services also manages the health insurance application process. For students who do not have other coverage, application forms are available at Health Services to be completed by the student during registration. If the student has coverage, a waiver form must be filled out and turned in so that the insurance charge is not applied to their account.
