The Henry Wise Wellness Center is a resource and service center for all matriculating students.  We offer appointments and walk-in visits for medical services at little or no additional cost to all BSU students.

Make an Appointment

All students are encouraged to use the patient portal to schedule an appointment when seeking services.  Those who walk in without an appointment may be required to wait until there is an opening in the schedule or they may chose to make an appointment for later during the day or week.  They will be seen on a first come, first serve basis after students with appointments have been seen.

Students will be charged a $5 no show fee if they do not cancel their appointment within a 24 hour time period.
