Health & Counseling Services

Health Center

In case of illness, students should contact the health center at extension 8102. The Health Center is open from 8 a.m. till 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Students can be seen on a walk-in basis between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. We have a full time nurse practitioner, registered nurse, and certified nursing assistant on staff.

All students taking 12 or more hours at Wingate University are automatically assessed "general fees" each semester.
Health Center fees are included in these "general fees" and allows for unlimited routine visits with a medical provider or nurse. Services such as lab, pharmacy, over the counter medications, medical supplies and immunizations are available at a reduced cost.

If necessary, prescribed medications can be obtained in the health center. Medical and prescription insurance are not accepted at the Health Center. If a student has prescription insurance and wishes to use it, he/she will need to get a prescription from the nurse practitioner and have it filled at a drug store.

Emergencies are handled through the emergency room at CMC-Union in Monroe. Emergency physicians are available 24 hours per day. Students are responsible for payment when they are referred off campus for treatment or follow-up care.

Allergy Injections
can be given in the Health Center. However, the student must be on his/her maintenance dose and supply his/her own vaccine, schedule, syringes and a statement from his/her allergist stating that they approve of the student receiving the allergy therapy at the Health Center.

Counseling Services

The Office of Counseling Services is dedicated to providing a safe and confidential environment for students to discuss a variety of personal and interpersonal concerns. Counseling Services is also committed to providing a holistic wellness component to students' educational experiences with an emphasis on maintaining a healthy mind, body and spirit.
"In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity” ~ Albert Einstein

Counseling is a process by which individuals who are dissatisfied with some aspects of their lives enter into a relationship with a trained professional in order to gain greater insight into their circumstances and to develop more effective ways of handling/responding to their situations.
In general, counselors do not give advice but seek to help you understand yourself and your situation more fully so that you may see your options more clearly and make good decisions for yourself. We cannot guarantee specific results toward your counseling goals. However, counseling does benefit many people, and we will do our best to work toward mutually agreed upon treatment goals.
At times, students may be more appropriately served through an off-campus mental health provider. Your counselor will discuss this with you and assist you with a referral if necessary.
