Does the Campus Health Clinic offer birth control?

We do not have samples of birth control. However, if you have a current PAP test done at our clinic, or have a normal PAP test and have established care with the Nurse Practitioner, we can give a prescription for your birth control. This prescription can be filled at a pharmacy of your choice. If you do not have a current PAP test, you can schedule an appointment with the Nurse Practitioner to have this done. We usually will give you a prescription for a year supply for your birth control. We also test and treat STD’s and perform/teach self-breast exams. If your PAP is abnormal, we will refer you to OBGYN of your choice for evaluation.

Can the Campus Health Clinic store my medications for me?

The nursing staff at the Campus Health Clinic can store injectable medications for you. We have a refrigerator and locked storage cabinets. However, if the clinic is closed, you will not have access to your medication. You will need to plan ahead. If your medication expires we will hold it for 30 days for you to pick up, after 30 days it will be discarded/destroyed per policy. We cannot use expired medications in our facility.

Does the Campus Health Clinic give allergy injections?

Yes. You will have to schedule an appointment with the Nurse Practitioner for an initial office visit to establish care. We will need a copy of a physician order from your allergist/doctor. Your doctor will need to mail your medication to our clinic or you can bring it to the clinic. We can store your allergy serum in our refrigerator.   Please note that we require you to wait 20 minutes after the injection to observe for any reaction. The Nurse Practitioner must be in office to receive your injection, so we do not give allergy injections from 11:30AM – 1:00PM.

What vaccines does the Campus Health Clinic offer?

 We offer the Hepatitis B series (series of 3 injections), Varicella (Chicken Pox, series of 2 injections), Menactra (Meningococcal vaccine), Tetanus and Diptheria Vaccine, Measles, Mumps and Rubella Vaccine, Gardasil Vaccines (series of 3 injections) and Influenza Vaccine (flu shot).

Can the Campus Health Clinic refill my routine home medications?

Yes and no. There are some medications that our Nurse Practitioner cannot prescribe. You will need to schedule an appointment with the Nurse Practitioner to discuss your health concerns and medications. You may also call the nursing staff at the clinic with a list of your medications and the nursing staff will let you know whether they may be prescribed by the Nurse Practitioner. If we cannot refill your medications, we will refer you to a physician on staff with Southeast Health.

Does the University require students to have health insurance to be a student at Southeast?

Domestic students are not required by the University to have health insurance or to show proof of insurance in order to be admitted and enroll at Southeast.

The options listed below are not affiliated with Southeast Missouri State University and students should closely review their individual preferences and consider the varying premiums and coverage different plans offer.

  1. United States federal health insurance portal
  2. Many students, up to age 26, have access to health insurance through their parent/guardian(s)’ plans.
  3. A variety of private agents provide access to health insurance coverage and can provide details on plan coverage and premiums.

International students, those with F1/J1 visas, are required to purchase health insurance through Southeast. Details on the specific requirements and details on the program can be found at the International Educational Services health care website
