Student Wellness

Student Health Service

Student Health Services is a general practice medical clinic providing care to enrolled students of the University of Mississippi. Tuition covers the cost of the services.

The health center is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday. No clinical services are available during holiday periods.

Drugs, laboratory tests, X-ray procedures and supplies are provided to the student on a reduced cost basis. Any medical services that are covered by insurance will be filed by SHS. Drug prescriptions, specialized care at a referred clinic or hospitalization is the responsibility of the student unless the services rendered are covered by medical insurance.

Information regarding insurance offered may be viewed online on the Student Health Service website.

Immunization Requirement

The Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning, in cooperation with the Mississippi State Board of Health, requires that all entering students whose date of birth is after Jan. 1, 1957, must submit proof of two immunizations for measles and one for rubella prior to registration. Immunizations must be given after one year of age. Forms for documenting immunization or establishing an exemption to the requirement are available from the Student Health Service.

University Counseling Services

The University Counseling Center offers personal counseling and therapy aimed at assisting individuals in the university community to cope with life stresses. Group counseling, needs assessment and 24-hour crisis intervention are just some of the services available.

The Law School’s wellness counselor, Shilpa Boppana, will also be available to law students each week on Tuesdays and Thursday for walk-ins or appointments. To schedule an appointment with her call 662-915-6803.
