Services and Policies
Scheduling an Appointment
Appointments with the nurse or clinician can be scheduled by calling (717) 948-6015.
If you are unable to make your scheduled appointment, please call the office to cancel or to reschedule. This will afford another student the opportunity to be scheduled in your place.
Appointments that are not cancelled or rescheduled will be subject to a "no-show" fee.
Costs and Billing
Nominal fees will be charged for clinician visits, medications and supplies (if ordered) at the time of your visit. All fees will be posted to the student account and can be paid online through eLion or at the bursar’s office.
Penn State offers students, spouses and dependents the opportunity to purchase health insurance. Be aware that the plan is NOT full-coverage insurance. There are specific limits to the policy regarding how you receive benefits and the amount of reimbursement. It is the responsibility of each insured to understand the policy.
Penn State requires international students, their spouses and dependents, graduate assistants and fellows to demonstrate that they have health insurance.

Release of Medical Records
Penn State Harrisburg Student Health Services assures that all health care providers adhere to ethical principles and codes of professional practice including patient confidentiality, privacy, dignity and informed consent.
All medical records are held in the same strict confidence as in other health care settings. Although this high degree of confidentiality is often a concern to parents seeking information, medical information is released only with the student's written consent, or by a court-ordered subpoena.
Penn State policy requires students accepted to Penn State to electronically self-report record of being immunized against Measles, Mumps and Rubella.
If you were born in 1956 or before, you are considered immune to Measles, Mumps and Rubella and do not need to self-report being vaccinated against these diseases.
