The VU Student Medical Care Program is designed to help our students stay healthy on campus. Full time students on the Vincennes campus may be seen at the Vincennes University Primary Care Center (UPCC)-Student Health Office located in the Young Building on campus. Any prescriptions, x-rays or laboratory fees are the responsibility of the student. The UPCC nurses are available for assessment of acute illnesses and injuries.

  • Acute illness or minor injury, (such as, but not limited to, sore throat, cough, fever, urinary symptoms, sprained ankle etc.,) can be seen by appointment. Referral to a UPCC provider is determined by nursing assessment. The Student Health Office Nurse may provide over-the-counter medications, initial care and follow-up care of minor injuries, and tetanus/diphtheria injections following an injury when indicated.

  • Chronic disease management (such as, but not limited to, hypertension, diabetes etc.,) will not be managed at UPCC. A list of local providers that can manage these conditions can be provided to the student. Diagnostic tests (such as STD and pregnancy testing), pre-existing or chronic disease management conditions, vaccinations, procedures, and physicals are not covered under this plan.

  • For emergent injuries, (such as, but not limited to, head injury, seizures, motor vehicle accident or injury requiring suturing or diagnostic imaging), student should call 911 or go to nearest Emergency Department.

Residence Hall students and full-time commuter students on the Vincennes campus are automatically enrolled in the VU Student Medical Care Program. The program is mandatory for residence hall students. Off-campus students may opt out of this program before the end of the third week of class.  Your choice to opt out will be effective for the entire semester.
