Procedure for Services
All students are encouraged to call for an appointment when seeking services. Those who walk in without an appointment may be required to wait until there is an opening in the schedule or they may chose to make an appointment for later during the day or week. They will be seen on a first come, first serve basis after students with appointments have been seen.
The Henry Wise Wellness Center is still accepting immunization records for all students. Any students who have not yet submitted their immunization records, entrance medical history forms or meningitis waivers should submit the forms as soon as possible to avoid holds being placed on their accounts for the Spring 2012 semester. Please call 301-860-4170 for any questions. Forms can be faxed to 301-860-4179. If you have already submitted your immunization forms but recently received a letter stating that your forms are missing, please confirm receipt of these materials with the Wellness Center after October 1, 2011. We will extend the grace period until the end of September to resolve any outstanding issues and to avoid holds on registration.
Student Waiver form deadline: February 23, 2013
*You have to be logged into the Insurance's website to access the form.
