Student Health Services and Counseling

On-Campus Student Health Services

Located on campus at 1203 Rachel Carson Court, Student Health Services provides many of the technical services students need when they arrive, such as the collection of immunization papers and prescription records from home. Students can also stop in at any time to ask basic medical questions and address any concerns. While no actual medical services are provided by this office, our friendly staff will know where a student should go if there is a medical need. Services provided at Eagle Physicians or in the Student Health Services are free to our traditional students. A list of covered services (no co-pay required) is available here.

In addition to these services provided at no cost, Eagle accepts many insurance plans (including Guilford’s student health insurance plan) for treatment of more complicated issues or for testing not included in the list of covered services. Some of these services require an appointment. Students must present their Guilford College ID at check-in. It is important that students have a copy of their insurance card with them at school and that they have means (credit/debit/cash) to pay a co-pay or any charges that may be incurred due to an illness or testing not covered by our agreement with Eagle Physicians.

Health Records and Insurance

Health Records

New Student Requirements

Completion of the immunization form is mandatory and must be completed by a physician. Students aged 23 and older should have their physician complete the adult student immunization form.

Prior to attending classes, each new student is required by North Carolina law to submit certification of immunization to the on-campus Student Health Services office, located at 1203 Rachel Carson Court.

These records, along with the Medical/Family history form may be mailed to us at: Guilford College Student Health Services 5800 West Friendly Ave, Greensboro, NC 27410. You may also fax the forms in at 336.316.2184 or email this information to Susan Smith. If you have questions about immunizations or the health form, please call 336.316.2194.

International students are, in addition, required to have a physical and TB skin test. Students who fail to comply with this state law within 30 days of the start of the semester will be withdrawn from their classes.

Insurance

Traditional students must have health insurance each semester and will be automatically enrolled in the UnitedHealthcare insurance plan for Guilford students, which is billed to your Guilford account. If you are covered by your own policy and have comparable coverage, you may opt out of this plan by completing the online waiver. Instructions for completing the online waiver are included in your tuition bill. Please call Student Health Services at 336.316.2194 or Office of Student Accounts at 336.316.2541 or 336.316.2102 for questions regarding insurance. Please review your policy to ensure you are adequately covered (this includes the determination of PPO/HMO status and North Carolina coverage). Information and frequently asked questions about 2017-18 UnitedHealthcare Student Resources coverage are available here.
