Student Health Services
When you're sick or have a minor injury, you have a convenient way to get the healthcare you need on the Southeast Missouri State University campus.
Our Southeast Campus Health Clinic serves students, faculty and staff. We're within walking distance from student housing and classes. That makes us a great choice if you need to see a medical provider but don't have a car or a lot of time in your day.
In addition, we offer many services to help keep you healthy and safe.

Our Student-Friendly Clinic and Staff
In addition to our great services and location, we have a wonderful staff. It's something you'll notice. And it's something that sets us apart.
From the person who checks you in at the front desk to the nurse practitioner and registered nurse who oversee your care, our team loves working with students. We offer a relaxed atmosphere where students can feel comfortable seeking medical care. This is a judgment-free zone.
Everyone in our clinic is friendly and compassionate. We enjoy building relationships with patients and treating you like family.
Our billing process is also student-friendly. We will bill your health insurance, and any remaining balance will be applied to your university student account.
If you don't have health insurance, we can also bill your student account. Students without insurance may fill out an application for the Financial Assistance Program. If you're 18 or older, the application will be based on student income only.
