At the Center for Health and Well-Being, we specialize in college health. That means the services are not limited to traditional models of health care that have emphasized the treatment of an individual’s illness. We also work to ensure a healthy campus community.
It’s important and expected, that IUP will provide support, services, and programs that affect not only individual students’ health, but the broader campus community as well. That’s why we address prevention and early intervention of concerns like sexual violence, alcohol and
other drug use, stress, eating disorders, anxiety, and depression. While not every student may be affected, most will be indirectly impacted by the consequences of such problems.
The fees also support the work needed to meet state and federal regulations related to college health concerns that may be required of the university. This is important because doing so can impact state and national standing of the university programs.
This is a mandatory fee of $14.50 per credit taken by the student. It is charged in the fall and spring semesters. It is used to provide services and programs that promote the well-being of students. The fee supports the services of the Center for Health and Well-Being,
Disability Services, and Sports Medicine. The Center for Health and Well-Being services include:
Students who pay this fee have full access to all the services offered through the Center for Health and Well-Being. Students from other campuses may choose to pay this fee and receive care on the Indiana campus.
At times, additional charges may be necessary. Any additional charges will be billed to the student account. The Center for Health and Well-Being accepts no payments on-site.
If you attend all of your classes on another campus, you will not be charged this fee. If you want to use the services offered at the Center for Health and Well-Being’s Health Service or Counseling Center, you can call the Bursar’s office at 724-357-2207 and request to be charged the Wellness Fee.
