Student Health Services
REACH OUT TO JENNIFER FOR CONTENT APPROVAL
Student Health Services is the campus medical clinic that is available to meet the primary care needs of the student population. The health center is located in the Coors Life Directions Center. Our hours of operation are weekdays from 7:30 am to 5 pm. Our Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistant are experienced in treating the common medical problems seen on college campuses. We offer diagnosis and treatment for a broad spectrum of illness and injuries and facilitate appropriate follow-up care.
The healthcare services provided to students are confidential unless we have written permission to discuss or disclose information to a relevant party. We do work closely with Residence Life, Student Disability Services/ University Testing and the Office of Counseling and Personal Development to meet the physical and mental health needs of the university student body.
Please consider referring a student to the health center who is in need of routine medical care. If a student is experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911 and notify Campus Safety. We’re always here to help and want to partner with you to help each student be successful and healthy!
Disability Services and University Testing
REACH OUT TO JOIE FOR CONTENT APPROVAL
Student Disability Services is the place where students come to request their accommodations. All accommodation requests work through this office; not through the professor. Faculty will receive an LOA (Letter of Accommodation) from SDS/UT (Student Disability Services & University Testing) once the student has made the request. The LOA will list the accommodations that the student is eligible for. If faculty has concerns or questions about student use of accommodations, or whether the accommodation is appropriate for the style of teaching and learning that is being conducted, we are more than happy to talk with you. If there are questionable student behaviors in the classroom with students who have LOAs, we encourage you to reach out to us so that we can either work directly with the student or guide the student in the right direction.
University Testing is available to answer any questions relating to CLEP and DSST exams for students who are interested in testing out of select core classes. Students' advisors should discuss this option with the students also.
Students are reminded that they need to contact Student Disability Services and University Testing at the start of the spring semester. Please call the front desk to schedule an appointment (303-458-4941) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome back to the start of the spring term. We look forward to working with you.
