Student Health Services

Student Health Services
Care at the Bard College Student Health Service is based on a holistic approach to treating students. Our goal is to promote optimum physical, emotional, intellectual, and social well being through education, preventative and primary care.

We believe that health care is a partnership between
the student and the health care provider.

All students are eligible to be seen at Health Service, regardless of their insurance coverage.

As the academic year begins to wind down, please remember to get some sleep and to eat regularly! Also remember to request birth control pills or prescriptions before you leave and remember to pick them up!

We will STOP sending ROUTINE STI TESTING on Friday May 4th, 2018 and resume in September. This allows us to get results to students before they leave for the semester.

SENIORS: After Friday May 11, 2018, we will no longer be able to submit charges to your Student Account for any medications that are dispensed by HS. You will have to pay cash (we do not have the ability to charge credit or debit cards) or you can have prescriptions sent to a local pharmacy.

A Nurse Practitioner will be on site for limited hours over the summer to see students who are working for the college and to handle telephone or email requests for appropriate medications. Please call for appointments and to check coverage.
