Keeping you healthy.

In case of life threatening emergency, dial 911.

The Wellness Center provides limited primary healthcare services and mental health resources to support students in reaching their optimal health so that they can achieve their full academic and personal potential. To best meet the needs of the students, the Wellness Center offers health and counseling services in one convenient location on the Owings Mills Campus.

Through health education, the Wellness Center encourages self-care and personal responsibility for the student's own health, with an emphasis on safety. We collaborate with other University services to promote student success and engagement in the Stevenson community.

Treatment is available to eligible students whose concerns fall within this Scope of Services. Those whose needs cannot be met within this model will be referred to community resources for care.

Please note that the clinical services at the Wellness Center are intended for students and are not available to Stevenson University employees.

Appointments can be made in person or by calling the Wellness Center at 443-352-4200.

Health and Wellness Services at Stevenson

Health Services

Health Services

Make an Appointment

To make an appointment with the Wellness Center, call 443-352-4200.

The Wellness Center provides limited healthcare to students for a small fee for service. Currently, we do not accept private health insurance. We look to promote accountability for one’s health care choices and educate students regarding lifestyle choices that lead to a healthier life.

Our health services staff is comprised of one full time nurse practitioner, one part time nurse practitioner, and one part time physician during the fall and spring semesters. Our office partners with our local community to bring flu shot clinics and some nutritional programming to campus as well.

Common visit reasons:

  • Cold & flu symptoms
  • STI screenings/treatments
  • Women's health
  • Urinary or abdominal complaints
  • Dermatology complaints
  • Limited concussion care
  • Care for minor orthopedic injuries (no x-ray on site)

We cannot accommodate:

  • Allergy testing (including serum administration under the direction of another provider)
  • Visits for blood testing, x-ray, or other radiology modality
  • Formal diabetes education
  • Long term concussion care
  • "Notes" for missed classes/assignments whether or not seen in our office
  • Placement of tuberculosis (TB/PPD) skin tests
  • Drug testing
  • Pre-screening physical exams (pre-op, athletics, employment/ROTC)

Scheduling & Keeping Appointments

Appointments can be made in person or by calling the Wellness Center at 443-352-4200. Due to limited staffing, the Wellness Center cannot accommodate walk-in students on a regular basis. Walk-in students are offered the next available time slot, which can vary during the time of year. We strongly advise students to call ahead to ensure they won’t have to come back later in the day or the following day for an appointment. We make every effort to see patients within 24 business hours for sick visits and one week for well visits or screenings.

If a student arrives more than 10 minutes late for their health appointment they will be asked to reschedule out of consideration for other students. If a student needs to cancel an appointment, they should call the Wellness Center and speak to the front desk staff or leave a voicemail message after hours. Failure to cancel your health appointment before your scheduled appointment time will result in a $10 “No-Show” fee being charged to the student’s account.

Cost

A nominal fee is assessed for each visit for health services. In addition, the Wellness Center is able to provide some point-of-care testing and common prescription and over the counter medications for a small charge.

The cost of visits for health services is billed directly to the student’s account as a “Wellness Center Charge” for privacy purposes. The Wellness Center does not directly bill health insurance for services provided. Printed itemized statements of visits are available directly from the Wellness Center Patient Portal for purposes of reimbursement by insurance or flex spending account/HS. In some cases testing is sent to an outside lab directly from the Wellness Center. If this happens, a copy of the student’s health insurance card is sent with the specimen so the lab can directly bill the insurance company.

Fees are subject to change without notice. Navigate to the 'Fees' tab for a list of current fees.

To assist you in finding a healthcare provider in the community or a local specialist, view our Community Resource Guide or contact your insurance carrier directly.

  • Flu Information

    Fighting the flu starts with you. Get vaccinated!

    Wash your hands.

    Handwashing is the single most effective way to prevent the spread of the flu. Use soap and warm water and wash your hands often throughout the day, especially after using the restroom or before eating. If you don’t have a sink and soap nearby, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Feel free to stop into the Wellness Center to pick up a free hand sanitizer that will attach right to your keychain or backpack. There are also numerous hand sanitizer stations located in high traffic areas throughout campus buildings.

    Clean and cover.

    Flu virus can live on hard surfaces for up to 24 hours, so it is important to disinfect these surfaces often. Use common household cleaners to wipe doorknobs, countertops, and other surfaces—INCLUDING CELL PHONES—to help stop the spread of the virus. Be sure to follow the directions on the disinfectant to ensure maximum effectiveness. Cough and sneeze into your sleeve and wash your hands often. Be careful not to touch your face throughout the day. Many people don’t realize that the average person touches their face 2000-5000 times a day. Being more mindful of this will decrease your risk of transferring germs from surfaces such as doorknobs and desks to yourself.

    If you do end up sick STAY HOME FROM CLASS. Rest. Drink fluids. Repeat.

    Flu symptoms are severe and start very quickly. They include high fever (typically above 101°), chills, heightened fatigue, body aches, sore throat, and cough. If you feel that you might have the flu, call the Wellness Center at x. 4200 (443-352-4200) for an appointment or visit a local urgent care for evaluation. Contact your professors directly to let them know you are sick. Medicines such as ibuprofen can help to decrease fever and aches. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated and do your best to stay away from others. If possible, we recommend you return home for the duration of the illness, usually 7-10 days.

    Remember, the Stevenson Wellness Center is here to help you. Feel free to contact us if you feel that you are coming down with flu symptoms or if you have any questions.

 
Counseling Services

Counseling Services

Make an Appointment

To make an appointment with the Wellness Center, call 443-352-4200.

From time to time, students are presented with concerns or problems that require challenging decisions and effective coping strategies.

Working with a psychologist or mental health counselor is an opportunity for students to explore issues that may be interfering with their success and happiness in college. Counseling is a confidential process designed to help students learn more about themselves, to address their concerns and problems, and to discover effective solutions.

Some of the typical concerns students may have include:

• Adjustment to college
• Anxiety
• Depression
• Stress
• Troubled relationships
• Test anxiety
• Substance use
• Sexual assault (Sexual Misconduct Policy)
• Identity issues
• Self-Esteem

Counseling services are free for all Stevenson University students and include short-term counseling and crisis intervention. After an initial intake appointment, the counselor will determine if the student's needs are best met by the Wellness Center staff. If a student's needs are beyond the scope of the services provided on campus, a list of community resources will be provided to the student.

Counseling services at the Wellness Center are intended to be short-term. If students are currently receiving regular mental health services, it is recommended that they obtain a local psychiatrist/psychologist/counselor to continue their treatment. The Wellness Center will be happy to assist with local referrals.

Psychiatry Services

The Wellness Center has limited psychiatric services available to students. Psychiatric consultations are provided for Stevenson University students who are actively engaged in counseling in the Wellness Center. If deemed appropriate, a referral will be made for the psychiatrist. Alternatively, students may utilize their insurance provider's list for a community referral.

Psychiatry services come with a small fee charged to the students account. Due to the limited hours of the psychiatrist, failure to cancel an appointment at least 24 hours in advance results in the full fee being charged to the student’s account.

Scheduling & Keeping Appointments

Counseling sessions are by appointment only. Appointments can be made in person or by calling the Wellness Center at 443-352-4200. The Wellness Center can only see students the same day if the student is in a crisis situation (e.g. – suicidal or in extreme distress.)

If a student arrives more than 15 minutes late for their counseling appointment they will be asked to reschedule. If a student needs to cancel an appointment, they should call the Wellness Center and speak to the front desk staff or leave a voicemail message after hours. Failure to cancel a counseling appointment before the scheduled appointment time will result in a $10 “No-Show” fee being charged to the student’s account.

For more information or to set up an appointment, please contact us at 443-352-4200.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need health insurance to attend the university or use Wellness Center services?

    No. Stevenson University does not require health insurance. The Wellness Center does not accept health insurance. Charges for services are billed to student accounts. Students are encouraged to retain health insurance and carry their card with them (for referrals, lab testing, etc.). Unfortunately, at this time we are not offering a university health insurance plan. Consider the following:

    Check with your parent/guardian to see if you can remain on their policy Maryland Health Connection www.marylandhealthconnection.gov

  • What are the costs associated with an appointment?

    Some of the Wellness Center fees can be found in the 'Fees' tab of this webpage.

  • What should I expect if I make an appointment with the Wellness Center?

    Upon arriving to the Wellness Center, you will be asked to sign in at one of our computer kiosks. Please bring your SU ID and insurance card, if you have one. Please plan to arrive a few minutes early to allow time to complete the sign in process.

    Please also understand that we reserve the right to reschedule any appointment if you arrive 10 minutes late to your health appointment or 15 minutes late for your counseling appointment. Given time constraints with appointments, we do this to allow enough time for safe, quality care to be given to each patient.

  • How can I view a statement of my visit?

    Students can view and print itemized statements from their Wellness Center visit which can be submitted to their insurance company or flex spending account for reimbursement when applicable. To view your statement, go to our Wellness Center Patient Portal at https://stevenson.medicatconnect.com and click on the Statements tab.

  • What do I do if the Wellness Center has a delayed opening or is closed?

    If there is a University delay or closure, the Wellness Center closes along with the University. Students should refer to the Emergency Services link for instructions on how to obtain care during these instances.

  • Do I need to complete the Student Health Profile if I am turning in other health related records to other departments?

    Yes. All full-time students are required to complete the Student Health Profile. Please refer to those specific departments for any further health requirement questions, i.e. Athletics.

  • Do returning students need to complete the Student Health Profile every year?

    No, the Student Health Profile only needs to be completed your first year at Stevenson. However, if you were you were previously a part-time student and are now taking 12 or more credits you must complete the Student Health Form upon becoming a full-time student. If you haven't been a Stevenson University student for at least 2 years and you are reapplying for admission to Stevenson University as a full-time student, you will need to complete an updated Student Health Form.

  • How can I obtain my medical/health records from the Wellness Center (including immunization records)?

    Complete the Consent to Release/Exchange Medical Information Form located on our Health Forms tab. Please allow two to three business days for our center to fulfill your request.

  • Does the Wellness Center provide notes for excusal from class?

    The Wellness Center staff does not issue medical excuses for academic obligations. Course requirements and attendance are academic matters between the student and the faculty. Students are advised to schedule their Wellness Center appointments outside of set class times. Students who choose to visit the Wellness Center during class time for non-serious conditions should contact their faculty by telephone or e-mail as soon as possible to make the necessary arrangements to complete missed assignments. Students may request proof of a visit to the Wellness Center after a visit, or by contacting the front desk. However, this note does not determine if you will be allowed to make up a missed assignment or if your absence will be officially excused. This decision is solely the responsibility of the instructor. Medical excuse notes are generally not issued for visits and notes will not be given for students seen outside of the Wellness Center. Medical excuses will not be issued during midterms or finals and are not given for routine conditions (colds, sore throat, upset stomach, rash, routine appointments/testing consultations, etc.). If in our medical opinion, the condition is urgent or serious, a medical excuse may be considered. *In the event of a serious illness or injury requiring hospitalization or extended absence of 3 or more consecutive business days from classes Julie Sanz, CRNP, the Assistant Director of the Wellness Center, should be notified. The Wellness Center will assist the student and/or their family in notifying the necessary faculty once proper documentation can be supplied.

  • Can the Wellness Center provide documentation for accommodations?

    The Counseling Center does not conduct psychological evaluations for the purpose of determining disability status and also does not make accommodations recommendations for students who have been diagnosed with a disability. For this reason, we cannot provide documentation for students, even if the student is a current or former Counseling Services patient. The Wellness Center can provide students with a referral to a community provider for a disability evaluation. An off-campus psychologist or psychiatrist can evaluate a student's disability status. Alternatively, students may choose to consult with their primary physician. For further questions related to Office of Disability Services please call, 443-352-5320.

  • Who should I contact if I have suggestions for the Wellness Center?

    Please email the Wellness Center at wellness@stevenson.edu or call us at 443-352-4200. Students may also leave feedback for us by responding to our end of semester survey.

  • Community Resources: Can the Wellness Center refer students to outside providers and services?

    Community Resources

    Yes. There are times when the Wellness Center needs to refer students to providers and services in our community. We have compiled a list of local resources to help meet these needs. If there is a type of provider you need access to in this area who is not on the list, please feel free to contact our office for guidance. The list below provides the contact information for services that are nearby to campus but, the Wellness Center does not personally endorse any particular providers. In addition to the resources on this list, students may also check with their health insurance to find a local provider in their network.
