Health Resources During the Academic Year

At this time the H&WC is providing online scheduling for some conditions. You can schedule an appointment through the Health and Wellness Portal. If you have had a known exposure (being within 6 feet of someone diagnosed with COVID for 15 minutes or more over a 24 hour period), or the symptoms below, we are asking students to call the Health & Wellness Center at (925) 631-4254 to discuss your symptoms by phone. Symptoms:

  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Fever/chills
  • Body aches
  • Loss of taste or smell 

 If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911. 

Our Clinicians provide medical services in an urgent care model to all full-time undergraduate students (and international graduate students) for illnesses and injuries. For serious or chronic illnesses, students are assessed by our Clinicians then referred or “bridged” to hospitals and medical providers in the community or to their primary medical provider at home.

There is a $20 Health & Wellness appointment fee.  The H&WC also charges a nominal fee for lab testing, in house testing, immunizations, medications and supplies.  All fees for date of service will be billed to the students SMC account.  Please note that our services are for both residential and off campus students.

Services off campus such as laboratory testing, x-rays, consulting specialists, and hospitalizations are not covered by the College. In these cases, your health insurance would be used.

Due to COVID-19, the Health & Wellness Center will utilize telehealth and limited in-person visits for medical services. Outside of a critical need to meet with a student in person, which will be determined by our practitioners, the majority of health services will be offered via telemedicine. We will screen all students prior to entry at the Health & Wellness Center and we will not be offering walk-in services, so we ask that you call ahead.

For medical needs, call the Health and Wellness Center at (925) 631-4254. Outside of normal business hours, students will be connected to a nurse advice line for medical needs. This website provides information for local off-campus resources. For administrative questions, call us or email us at
