What We Do
Student Health Services is a walk-in clinic. No appointments are necessary. Services provided are symptomatic treatment for minor illnesses, such as colds, sinus congestion, headaches, upset stomach, aches and sprains; first aid for accidental injury; blood pressure screening; and allergy injections, with physician approval. Students are assisted with referrals and appointments to local health professionals. When the clinic is closed, help may be obtained from the Residence Life Coordinators or the Public Safety Office on Campus. Harding does not assume financial responsibility for professional services that require a physician; medical, surgical, or emergency services; or hospitalization. Students are financially responsible for any medical and/or prescription bills.
Students are responsible for compliance with the attendance policies of individual professors and Harding University. Students are to report to Student Health Services before missing class to be excused for medical reasons. Chapel may be excused through the Student Life Office. Student Health Services is not responsible for excusing Chapel. You may look up entered excuses on Pipeline by first logging on, then clicking on "School Services," "My HU Info," "Student & Financial Aid," "Student Records," "Class Excuses," and finally, "Show Excuses for Entire Semester".
While residing in Searcy, students should have the information necessary for coverage of local doctor visits and prescription costs. To obtain this information, students should contact their insurance provider. Students without health insurance can get insurance information from Human Resources in the Ezell room 130. Students must sign up within 30 days of registration. ALL STUDENTS ARE ADVISED TO HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE. Please read the Student Handbook for additional information regarding chronic or pre-existing illness, disposal of needles and syringes, allergy injections, excuse policies, etc.
