About SHC

The MU Student Health Center (SHC) offers medical care with behavioral health consultation and psychiatry services. As part of Student Health and Well-Being, SHC providers coordinate treatment with counselors at the Counseling Center.

We strive to provide

  • High quality, affordable, accessible, integrated health services
  • A safe environment respecting students of race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, disability, protected veteran status and any other status protected by applicable state or federal law
  • Confidential services
    • HIPAA: The Privacy Rule, a federal law, gives you rights over your health information and sets rules and limits on who can look at and receive your health information.
    • FERPA: The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 is a federal law designed to protect the privacy of educational records; to establish the rights of students to inspect and review their education records.

SHC is included in MU Health Care’s electronic health record, allowing referrals for specialty care, receiving emergency services and improved care coordination for hospitalized students.
