How much do health assessments cost, and how many can you get in a year?

All health assessments are free, and you may have unlimited assessments a year as long as you are a currently enrolled CPP student. At times, we may limit you to 3 per day when we get busy in the Wellness Center.

Do I need to make an appointment to get my body fat tested?

No, that is a free service that does not require an appointment in advance. Just walk in to the Wellness Center during business hours.

How much do condoms cost?

You may buy ten condoms for $1, and if you like us on Facebook you may get 10 a week for free! At times, we may also have a supply of free condoms for anyone.

What's the best condom?

That all depends on you and your partner! Most condoms are slightly different in length, head width, type of lube, style (male vs. female), and material (polyurethane vs. latex vs. lamb skin). There is no way for anyone else to tell you what will be the best fit or feel for you. That is a decision best made by you and your partner. The good news is that we have a wide variety of types (over a dozen!), and at 10 condoms for $1, you won't be breaking your wallet! So come on in and try out all of them to see which may be right for you.

Who can request an Outreach Program/Assistance Request Form?

Anyone can request a Program Request Form–faculty, staff or student. Just know that since we are funded with student fees, our services are geared for students or faculty and staff if students are the main focus.

Why is the Wellness Center important to our campus?

The Wellness Center creates a supportive environment for life-enhancing behaviors which contribute to individual health, community well-being, and academic achievement. Our programs and services often serve the entire campus and help to reduce lost class or study time due to negative issues from poor health or wellness.

What type of appointments does the Wellness Center offer?

You can make confidential, individual appointments to address any of the following:

  • Alcohol and Other Drug Use
  • Back care
  • Birth Control Options (available online as well)
  • Exercise
  • HIV Testing
  • Men's Health
  • Nutrition
  • Sexual Health & Sexuality (including STI screening information)
  • Smoking Cessation
  • Stress Management
  • Women's Health

Do you offer group appointments or can someone from the Wellness Center come to us?

We are flexible in how we get the educational information to you. Depending on the size of your group, we could accommodate up to 40 people in our facility. However, to get started, you would need to request Outreach Program/Assistance. One of our health educators will review your request and get back to you for further guidance.

Where can I find information about health insurance?

Check out our web page on Health Insurance. You'll find a link to a low cost plan administred by ASI and provided to all the CSUs. There are also many other options and resources pertaining to the Affordable Care Act.

What is "BMI"?

BMI stands for Body Mass Index. This number is determined by a set formula that takes your height and weight and determines where you fall on a chart for underweight, normal, overweight, or obese. However, know that an individual can be overwieght based on their BMI but still have a healthy percentage of body fat. The government has found this tool helpful in classifying individuals on a larger scale, and in determining broad programs to address health issues. You should always discuss your BMI with one of our staff to put it in perspective for you.

What types of birth control are offered at Student Health Services?

We offer a wide arrange of options. Please see our Birth Control Options webpage for more detailed information.

Do you offer pre-natal classes?

No, we do not offer pre-natal classes. We do not have an OBGYN on staff either, so you would need to look for this type of service elsewhere. Female patients can be seen initially to confirm a pregnancy, but ongoing care will then be referred out for followup. Our Referral Department may be able to help you find local resources. Contact them at 909-869-2737.

Can I get my outside birth control prescription filled at your pharmacy?

We will fill prescriptions written by outside doctors provided we carry that medication in our pharmacy. Since we have a limited supply of medications, with the majority being generic in kind, you need to speak to the Pharmacist to confirm that we carry your specific brand of medication. Please call the Pharmacy (909-869-2744) to inquire about your prescription.
