Student Health Services is a walk-in clinic, no appointments necessary. We provide symptomatic treatment for minor illness, such as colds, sore throats, sinus congestion, headaches, coughs, upset stomachs, and minor injuries. We also assist patients in monitoring their blood pressure and other vital signs. Individuals may receive their allergy shots, with physician approval. Students are also assisted with referrals and/or appointments to local health professionals as indicated by their specific need . When the clinic is closed, assistance may be obtained from the Residence Life Coordinators (dorm moms) or the Office of Public Safety, 501-279-5000. Harding does not assume financial responsibility for professional services that require physician; medical, surgical, or emergency services: or for hospitalization. Students are financially responsible for any medical and/or pharmacy bills.
Students are responsible for compliance with the attendance policies of individual professors and Harding University. Students are to report to Student Health Services before missing class to be excused for medical reasons. Chapel may be excused through the Student Life Office.
