Does MJC offer health insurance for students?
No, MJC does not offer insurance to students. You can obtain more information about insurance options through Covered California.


Where can students get tested for sexually-transmitted infections?

Do students need to make an appointment?
At this time Health Services operates on a drop-in basis only with the exception of doctor clinic on Tuesdays and Thursdays at East Campus and mental health services.

When can I get my TB test read?
For more information, please refer to the TB Screenings Information.


What is the cost for immunizations and titers?
Please refer to the current Fee Schedule.

Can I get all my immunizations/screenings at once?
It will depend on which immunizations you need. The nurse will review this with you. Please have documentation of any previous immunizations available, if possible. 


Why should I have a MJC student ID card and a current semester sticker?
The student ID card determines whether you are a student at MJC and the semester sticker tells us that you have paid your health fee. Health Services is not funded by general funds like other departments; we are funded by the health fee only. If you do not have a student I.D., please show us another I.D. and a screen shot/printout of your current MJC class schedule showing a $0 balance.


Is there a doctor available on campus?
Yes, MJC Health Services is in partnership with the Stanislaus County Residency Program. We have a doctor available some Tuesdays and every Thursday on East Campus to see students. Students must be seen by a nurse first in order to sign up for a visit with the doctor.


Are any services available to faculty and staff of the college?
Tuberculosis (TB) tests and over-the-counter products are available for free.


Can I call in for my test results?
Due to confidentiality laws, no test results of any kind can be given over the phone. Walk-ins to see the nurses will be necessary for reviewing the results.


Where can I view the requirements for my program (Health Clearances)?
Please review your academic program's health clearance page.
