Lincoln University's Student Health Services (SHS), located in the Thompkins Center, is here to protect and maintain the health of all currently enrolled students. Medical services are provided at no cost. Should tests, x-rays, and other services beyond the scope of the Center be recommended, the Student Health staff will assist students with referral and insurance billing. Any on-going medical condition such as, but not limited to, diabetes, hypertension, epilepsy or migraine is the responsibility of the student's primary care physician (PCP). SHS will monitor the student's health in collaboration with the PCP.
As a courtesy to Lincoln University employees, faculty and staff may be seen in Student Health Services for services such as but not limited to blood pressure checks and weight, at the discretion of the SHS staff. In the event an employee requires a health-related medical referral or treatment this must be done through the employee's primary care physician. Family members of students, faculty and staff are not eligible for treatment in Student Health Services.

2015 Health Insurance Information
Due to a recent policy change by the Board of Curators in June 2015, student health insurance is ONLY mandatory for international students. Therefore, waivers are no longer applicable. International students, regardless of their enrollment status, are required to purchase the student health insurance. For more information, please contact the Student Health Center.
