Student Health Center
Maintaining optimum health is essential to academic
and personal growth. The Student Health Center is dedicated to providing
comprehensive primary health care to SMCC students. We are located opposite
the Admissions Office in the Campus Center.
Nurse Practitioner/Director of Student Health Center:
All matriculated students at SMCC must comply with
all applicable immunization requirements as determined by Maine State
Law. All students must have proof of diphtheria/tetanus every ten years.
Students born after 1956 must also show proof of measles, mumps and rubella
(MMR). Selected programs have additional requirements specified by the
College and the major. Students who do not meet the requirements may not
register for classes. Immunizations are available at the student health
center by appointment. Allied health and nursing students are required
to have an annual TB screening. All immunizations are available at the
Student Health Center for reasonable cost. Second year students may schedule
appointments for TB testing.
SMCC offers insurance policies to meet most accidental and sickness expenses not covered by the health fee. SMCC encourages students to purchase school insurance to avoid unexpected health care costs. Students are covered at school, at home, while traveling or participating in school-sponsored activities. Full details are available in the Student Health Center. Enrollment is limited to students taking six credits or more. Students may sign up for the optional health insurance (accident with illness coverage) during the first four weeks of the semester. Dependent and spousal insurance is available at an additional cost.
Emergency Medical Services are available through Security (741-5553). Licensed EMTs are available through our Licensed EMS response unit. Please call Security at 4553 on Campus for assistance.
