Student Health Center Campus Box 8311 (208) 236-2330
In addition to high quality care, another important factor is affordability of medical care. Office calls are free to all students who pay full ISU fees whether or not they elect to carry ISU Student Health Insurance. Prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, x-rays, and laboratory work are available at greatly reduced rates, compared to off-campus sources. Students can save a substantial amount of money by utilizing these on-campus health services. Part-time students (those paying fees for at least one credit) and spouses of full-time students can receive medical care for a minimal clinic fee and are eligible to use the Student Pharmacy.
Students are seen on a walk-in basis or by appointment for most medical services including treatment or consultation for any health concerns. Nutritional counseling is offered at the Health Center in cooperation with the ISU Department of Dietetics. Individualized health, nutrition, and exercise programs will be designed for students who are over- or underweight or who have conditions which could be helped with these programs.
