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 staff members anytime the center 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.

The health center offers affordable, accessible physician services that are available for in-person and TeleHealth appointments. The health center accepts most commercial insurances and Medicaid. Students with no health insurance coverage will be billed on a sliding fee scale according to their income.

Appointments may be scheduled by calling 252-399-6397 or by emailing healthcenter@barton.edu.  Students are encouraged to utilize health center services before seeking off-campus health care.
