Student Health Services

Welcome to Student Health Services

The Student Health Services Office is designed to be the primary source of health care for KWC students. The goal of the office is to help students maintain good health so they may continue educational and other college experiences. All services are confidential.

Services are available at no cost to all students — the only requirement is a completed health form on file, including health insurance information.

The Student Health Services Office is located in Room 213 on the second floor of the Barnard-Jones Administration Building.

Hours of operation are 9 am – 3 pm Monday through Friday. 

Health Insurance

All full-time students are required to have health insurance. Proof of insurance must be on file in the Student Health office.

Free HIV Testing for Students

We are currently affiliated with a program that offers free, confidential HIV tests. This is a simple three step process where you can receive the test and the results quickly. All that is required is your KWC student e-mail. Other STD tests are available at a discount using gift cards that you can pick up in the nurse’s office, room 213 Administration bldg. Use the following link to access this offer. The link will guide you to a universities and colleges page. Find KWC and follow directions. See Tonya Marksberry, campus nurse, if you have any questions.

Class Excuses

It is the responsibility of the student to communicate with the professor in the event of a class absence due to illness or injury, and to follow the requirements of that professor regarding the course work missed. When possible, the student should contact the instructor before the class is missed. If the instructor contacts Health Services, only the dates of the student being seen will be verified.

Counseling Services

Kentucky Wesleyan College provides mental health counseling services for all students through the Counseling Services Office located in the Administration Building Room 209B. This office is staffed by the Director of Counseling who is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Services are provided for a number of issues including homesickness, stress, eating disorders, substance abuse, family/personal relationships and other issues related to mental health. Fees for these services are included in tuition costs; there is no additional charge to the student.

Students may call the Counseling Services Office directly to schedule an appointment, 270-852-3183. In the event this call goes to voicemail, callers are encouraged to leave a message with contact information; the call will be returned promptly. All information shared with the counselor is considered strictly confidential. Students experiencing personal, emotional, psychological, or academic problems are encouraged to seek assistance through the Counseling Services Office.
