Are you immunized? Before registering, students must provide a completed Health Immunization Form verifying up-to-date immunizations. This form is kept on file at the university’s Wellness Center.
Students who have a health concern, become sick or injured, should come to the Wellness Center for evaluation and/or treatment during regular office hours: Monday-Thursday 8am-4pm or Friday 8am-1:30pm.
A Registered Nurse is available on campus for routine nursing treatments when school is in session, during office hours. Students who need medical care must see the Campus Nurse, who will provide routine nursing treatment and determine if additional medical treatment is needed. Available services include:
- Diagnostic Service Referral

- Anonymous Aids/HIV testing referral

- Walk-In Clinic
- Sexually Transmitted Disease Testing Referral

Services of medical personnel (other than those with the Montgomery Center for Family Medicine) as well as the cost of medications, treatments, x-rays, etc., prescribed by a physician are the financial responsibility of the student.
The Montgomery Center for Family Medicine will not treat students for chronic illness present before entering Lander University. The Student Health Services fee does not provide for the cost of a general physical exam.
Some over-the-counter medications are available at Health Services; however, students should bring to campus a personal supply of basic medications that are usually taken at home for minor illness.
It is a good idea to bring:
- Heating Pad
- Cool Mist Humidifier
- Any physician-prescribed medications for current illnesses
Allergy shots are not given at the Student Health Services. We can arrange for a student in need to receive this service from the Montgomery Center for Family Medicine. Please contact our office at 864-388-8885 for more information.
If the Campus Nurse determines that additional medical treatment is needed, the student will then receive a referral to go to the Montgomery Center for Family Medicine which is a contracted physicians’ office.
After-Hours or on Weekends, students who are sick should call 8222 (University Police) for assistance.
