Payment of the comprehensive fee entitles resident students to medical care by the college nurses, nurse practitioner or physicians in ordinary cases of illness. The fee does not provide and Wofford College does not assume the cost of x-rays, medications, special nursing care, consulting physicians, surgical operations, laboratory tests, treatment of chronic conditions, convalescence from operations, or hospital care. 

Nurse Practitioner / Registered Nurses
When a student visits The Wellness Center, he/she will be seen by a nurse practitioner and/or a registered nurse. The nurse practitioner is available most days of the week during certain hours (please check the website for specific hours). The nurse practitioner is able to diagnose, treat and prescribe medications as needed. Other services that are available to students at no charge are: over-the-counter medications, equipment checkout, assistance with referrals and preventative healthcare information.

Physician Referral
Should a student need a doctor’s appointment after being assessed in The Wellness Center, a nurse will assist the student by making the appointment with the college physicians, located 15 minutes away from campus. The office visit fee is covered by the comprehensive fee for resident students in ordinary cases of illnesses.

Laboratory Services 
We perform a limited number of lab tests in our facility at a small cost to the student including urinalysis, blood sugar, mono test, strep test and flu test. With physician orders, we are capable of obtaining blood and urine specimens for more extensive testing at a nominal fee. These specimens are sent by courier to a private lab for testing. Results are then sent to the student and if needed insurance can be filed by the student.
