We offer a variety of services to meet the health and wellness needs of students, faculty and staff.
Richland College has a
Health Center that promotes health, wellness and preventive care for students and staff. Registered nurses provide services including:
You don't need to be sick to come to the
Health Center. Health questions and concerns are welcome.
Students with chronic health problems should visit the Health Center to discuss any special concerns with the nurse before attending classes or whenever problems arise.
No information about your health will be released without your written permission unless required by law.
We recommend that all prospective students have adequate immunization for
bacterial meningitis, diphtheria, measles (also known as rubeola), rubella, mumps, tetanus and poliomyelitis. See the Texas Department of Health's
Recommended Adult Immunization Schedule.
Optional student health insurance, with optional coverage for spouse and children, is available through outside vendors. View information about health insurance vendors.
