Are You Sick?

You feel sick. You may have: a sore throat, swollen glands, fever, nausea with or without vomiting and diarrhea. You want to feel better, so what do you do and where do you go?

  • If you think you may miss class, email and/or call to leave a voicemail for your professor. You don't need to be graphic about your symptoms, just let him/her know you will be absent due to illness. Look on the course syllabus for the professor’s number.
  • All University Campus students may use this service. If you have the SLU endorsed GM-Southwest insurance, we will help you file your claim for service received when you see the doctor. Nursing service is without charge.
  • A physician is available on campus for appointments. Walk-ins are also welcome from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
  • If you think you need to see a doctor, look at your insurance card. If the name and phone number of a physician from back home is on the face of your insurance card this means you have some limitations. Call home and ask your parent what to do.
