Coronavirus Update: Health & Wellness Center
Health and Wellness will begin seeing students for a limited number of appointments beginning the week of 7/20/20. No walk-in appointments will be allowed, you must call in advance for appointments or visit the Health and Wellness Center for any reason.
We will be screening all visitors for symptoms of COVID-19 and requiring all staff and patients to wear masks. Currently, no one is allowed to accompany patients to their appointments. These policies are in place to minimize the risk of COVID-19 spread to you, your family, other patients, and our staff.
When scheduling an in-person appointment, you'll be required to fill out the student self-screening tool prior to coming to campus (or leaving your residence hall room). The screening tool can be found on a banner after signing in to myFSC or here. We will ask the same questions when you arrive for your appointment, and we will also take the temperature of every patient and visitor who arrives at Health and Wellness using "no-touch" thermometers.
Upon arriving at Health and Wellness for your appointment, please call and let us know that you are on campus for your appointment. We are limiting the number of people in our waiting room, so you will be asked to wait outside or in your car until the staff at Health and Wellness is ready to see you.
Our doctor and nurse practitioner will also offer video visits. If you have questions, Health and Wellness can help you determine whether the appointment you need can be a video visit rather than in person.
Health and Wellness will be offering screening for COVID-19 and antibody testing for both employees and students through Enzo Labs to help keep our campus community safe.

Important Registration Requirement
In order to quickly meet with your academic advisor and to register for classes, you must first provide the Health and Wellness Center with proof of receiving 2 MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) immunizations. You must also provide us with proof of a meningitis immunization within the last five (5) years, or sign a meningitis response form (Meningitis Response and Information Form). Please be advised that resident students must have the meningitis immunization.
You can obtain proof of these immunizations in several ways:
- Your pediatrician or healthcare provider
- A former high school or college
- Veterans can get proof through the VA
If for some reason you cannot get a copy, contact your healthcare provider or make an appointment at the Health and Wellness Center. Blood work, called titers, will be drawn in order to determine immunity.
We accept your immunizations on our own immunization form (Immunization Form), your healthcare provider's form or on a school's form. Please make sure all documents are legible, signed and stamped by the healthcare provider, include your name and date of birth and RAM number (if known).
Resident students will not receive keys to their dorm and athletes will not be allowed to practice until a complete Health Record is submitted.
You can find additional forms in the Forms section. Also check the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for more information regarding MMRs and how to submit paperwork.
