Welcome Merced College Students!

Merced College Student Health Services and Personal Counseling are available to students enrolled for the fall 2021 semester, with some changes to our regular processes. Please read the following information regarding how to access the various services available to you on both the Merced and Los Banos Campuses.

Face coverings will be required for any student contact until further notice.

Please read any informational signage posted on the door prior to entry to Student Health Services.

HEALTH SERVICES-MERCED CAMPUS:

 Student Health Services (Merced campus) is located on the south end of the Student Union Building. You may access Student Health by using the sliding glass doors behind the bookstore.

Student Health Services hours for the fall semester are Monday through Friday, from 8am-4:30pm.   Students will be asked to complete a brief COVID 19 Risk Assessment if prolonged face to face contact is expected. Appointments are strongly encouraged to allow for appropriate spacing of student contacts; however, walk-ins will be accommodated. We will also be tabling outside behind the Bookstore on occasion (weather permitting), so look for us there as well.

HEALTH SERVICES-LOS BANOS CAMPUS:

Please contact Student Health Services on the Merced campus at (209) 384-6045 for information and scheduling.

 PERSONAL COUNSELING-MERCED AND LOS BANOS CAMPUS

Personal Counseling will be provided during the fall 2021 semester via both face to face and tele-heath. Please contact Student Health Services to schedule a personal counseling appointment or to obtain information regarding resources available in the community.
