Student Health and Wellness

Health Services


The Health Care Clinic is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. and is closed from noon to 1 p.m. for lunch. The hours during which the clinic is able to provide services to students may vary depending on staff availability. The Health Care Clinic will be closed on holidays and when the University is closed.

For the health and well-being of our patients and our staff members all visits will first be conducted by a virtual visit and no walk-ins will be accepted. During the virtual visit, the clinic provider will determine if a face-to-face visit is necessary. The number of virtual and in-person visits are limited and provided on a first-call, first-served basis. These updates are subject to change. You may call the front desk staff at 361-593-3991 to see if the information on this page is still applicable.
