  • Dental services include X-rays, simple extractions and tooth-colored fillings, cleanings and more.
  • MSU's Sexual Assault Response Team works to provide a comfortable, safe environment for victims of sexual assault on campus where they can receive a medical examination by a licensed Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner, as well as counseling services from a licensed therapist, all free of charge. 

Schedule an Appointment

The health clinic currently takes appointments throughout the day until 2:00 p.m. An appointment is not necessary, but it is encouraged to decrease your wait time. Walk-ins are accepted throughout the day, but note that those with appointments or emergency needs will be seen first. Health clinic appointments may be scheduled by calling 606-783-2055 or by logging into your Online Student Health or Online Employee health account. You will use your MSU ID and password to login.
