Health Services

All full-time and part-time students are eligible for student health services at the Lee Student Health Center located on the corner of Atlantic Christian College Drive and Championship Drive, next to Hackney Hall. The health center is open for fall and spring semesters. Students can be seen by a nurse anytime the clinic is open. The health center does not issue notes to excuse a student’s absence from class. The authority to excuse a student’s absence from class remains with the faculty of the College.

A Physician is available on Mondays and Thursdays to provide treatment for minor illness and injuries on a walk-in basis. A Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP-C) is available on Wednesdays for the treatment of men’s and women’s health issues, and a Women’s Health and Wellness Coach (M.D.) is available on Fridays by appointment only.

Appointments may be scheduled by calling 252-399-6493. There is no charge to see a Physician or FNP-C, but some fees may apply for prescribed medications and/or laboratory work if ordered.

The health center offers certain vaccinations and Tuberculin skin tests for a fee. Students are encouraged to utilize health center services for medical advice and care before seeking off campus health care. There is no limit to the number of times a student can be seen in the Health Center.
