Additional health-related media material (books, videos, etc.) are maintained on campus and are available for student check out. We will continue to expand the website links to reputable sites that provide important information related to college health issues.

The nurse is available for student group presentations on a variety of health and wellness topics including, but not limited to:

Part of the student health fee provides registered students with health insurance coverage for care of injuries sustained on campus.

The college does not directly provide any general health insurance coverage for students. Students who are currently uninsured or underinsured are strongly encouraged to sign up for insurance through Covered California.
