Student Health Services (SHS) has secured COVID-19 testing capability and will provide such testing to any local students based on meeting their guidelines-based criteria for testing. In the event that SHS does not have this capacity, SHS will provide students with information for current public health and private testing options.
Student Health Services (SHS) will continue to operate during the academic year, but with a modified schedule. Same-day and walk-in appointment requests will be accommodated as best as possible. However, in the event they cannot fit you in, you will be directed to their telehealth partner, 7C.Health. SHS can be contacted at 909.621.8222 and advises you to review their website to get more detailed information about the services provided.
For those students who wish to avoid in-person visits at SHS or require non-emergent medical care outside of SHS hours of operation, they still have the option of utilizing the contracted telemedicine service, Campus.Health. This NO-COST option is available to ALL students at The Claremont Colleges, regardless of whether they are living on campus, locally off-campus or in a different part of the country. Please note that all telemedicine services will be provided through Campus.Health, not SHS.
Lastly, students may also choose to receive medical care through local community physicians, urgent cares or hospitals that are covered in their network, utilizing their private medical insurance or Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP). Please contact your insurance company directly to verify that a provider is covered by your insurance plan prior to obtaining services.
While SHS is unable to provide you services directly, The Claremont Colleges have contracted with a telemedicine service, Campus.Health. This NO-COST option is available to ALL students at The Claremont Colleges, regardless of whether they are living on campus, locally off campus or in a different part of the country.

For those students living internationally, unfortunately, neither SHS nor the contracted telemedicine service will be able to provide medical services to you at this time. You will most likely need to arrange for your own medical care locally where you reside. Please contact your Dean of Students if you require any further assistance in this matter.

On July 16, 2022, the U.S. launched a new three-digit phone number—988—an easy-to-remember way for people to connect with help and support during mental health, substance use, or suicide crisis. People can call or text 988 or chat online (988lifeline.org) to be connected to trained counselors.
988 has been designated as the new three-digit dialing code that will route callers to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (now known as the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline), and is now active across the United States.
When people call, text, or chat 988, they will be connected to trained counselors that are part of the existing Lifeline network. These trained counselors will listen, understand how their problems are affecting them, provide support, and connect them to resources if necessary. The previous Lifeline phone number (1-800-273-8255) will always remain available to people in emotional distress or suicidal crisis.
