Winslow Health Center – Student Health Services

Incoming Students for Fall 2021

First year and transfer students matriculating Fall 2021 are reminded that their Health Status Report (HSR) was due June 30th – the original forms are included in the Allegheny Bound booklet but can also be downloaded from the link above. If your Self-Service account is still showing incomplete and you sent in your forms, check your Allegheny email as you may be missing part of your HSR or have an error. There may be a delay between Winslow receiving HSR’s and the student Self-Service accounts being updated to reflect that they are complete. We ask that you please have patience. Thank you!

Visit our Frequently Asked Questions page to help with the most common items we’ve found new students to have regarding campus health services.

About Winslow Health Center

The Winslow Health Center staff supports the needs of our diverse student body through the provision of individual holistic care and education programs and activities. As college health care professionals knowledgeable about developmental issues, we work with students in promoting their physical and psychological well-being. The nurse practitioners and staff offer general health care services and preventive health services with a focus on issues that impact college students.

We also partner with various departments to offer student wellness programs that include campus-wide events and activities that help build the skills necessary for healthy living through the promotion of physical, intellectual, mental, sexual, and spiritual health and wellness. Please call Winslow Health Center to discuss or set up an appointment to discuss your individual needs.

Winslow Health Center provides high quality, accessible, cost effective, nonjudgmental, and confidential health care for Allegheny students. We embrace a culture of safety, courtesy, respect and dignity at each encounter with students. Our staff provides continuity of care, and educational and preventative services to all students regardless of differences or similarities in aspects of our identities.

The Allegheny College health team is committed to creating a compassionate environment.

Our vision is to empower students to be engaged in the practice of lifelong health and wellbeing.

Medical Excuses

We do not provide excuses or proof of visit forms for short term illness or injury (stomach flu, migraines, colds, sinus infections, sprains, etc.). This policy is consistent with recommendations from the American College Health Association, as well as the policies of other peer institutions. An absence from class is an administrative matter, not a medical one, and the resolution of this matter is between faculty and students. It is the student’s responsibility to communicate directly with the faculty regarding conditions that may interfere with attendance, and any decision about the impact of that absence rests with the faculty.

Self-Care Clinic

As of the 2020/2021 Academic Year, Self-Care Clinic items must be requested to have pre-packed ahead of time. Students can call Winslow or submit their request via the online form.
