Student Health Services updates regarding the 2020-21 academic year

  • Student Health Services (SHS) is attempting to secure 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. Medical services through SHS can be received on an appointment basis ONLY. Walk-in appointments will NOT be allowed due to COVID-19 pandemic related restrictions. As a result, same day appointment availability will be expanded to accommodate most students in a timely manner. SHS can be contacted at 909.621.8222. SHS also 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.

    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.

  • 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.
