General Information

As an urgent care clinic we strive to provide accessible and patient centered wellness services.  


Medical records are confidential and are protected by law. Therefore, information in a student's medical records, absent an order of the court (subpoena or warrant), may not be disclosed, discussed, or copied without the student's written consent, except in the case of public health matters where certain diseases are required to be reported to Contra Costa County Health Services. If medical information is requested by either a private Clinician or by the Health Center, this must be in writing with a release of information form signed by the student.


All full-time undergraduate students are eligible to use the Health Center, no matter what insurance a student may have. The exception: International Graduate students are required to take the SMC-SHIP insurance so they may be seen in our Clinic.

Saint Mary's College faculty, staff, and graduate students (except international as noted above) are not eligible to use the Health Center at this time, except in the case of emergencies.

The Health Center administers flu shots to faculty and staff for a fee.

Medical Excuses

The Health Center does not issue class excuses but can provide documentation that a student was seen at the Health Center if needed.

Medical Requirements

Prior to starting classes at Saint Mary's College, all undergraduate students must complete the following via the Health Center Portal August 1, 2022 (for Fall 2022 start) to prevent a registration hold:

  • Medical History Form
  • Immunization requirements: immunization records uploaded, showing that all required immunizations have been met.
  • Tuberculosis (TB) Screening/Testing Form: with an upload of TB test results, if indicated.

Everfi Courses

Two required Health Education Courses - AlcoholEdu for College and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates - will be sent to incoming Fall 2022 undergraduate students through their SMC starting the first week of June 2022. Both courses must be completed by August 1, 2022 to prevent a class registration hold.
