What We Do
"To promote students’ healthy lifestyles and academic success by providing quality medical, psychological, and wellness services."
Student Health and Counseling Services (SHCS) provides students with affordable, accessible and student-centered health care; personal counseling; and wellness services so you can receive the care and assistance you may need.. Services are available to all enrolled Cal Poly Pomona students, funded by a mandatory health fee that is included in tuition. Most services are covered by the health fee.
SHCS promotes academic and personal success and helps students develop healthy lifestyles. The department also serves a valuable public health role by caring for members of the campus community with the monitoring of required immunizations. The optional flu immunization program reduces lost class and study time for students. In times of a public health crisis, the department works closely with the public health department to put infectious disease control plans in place.
We want you to be mentally, physically, and emotionally healthy so you can achieve your best!
Student Health and Counseling Services is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. and Counseling Services is accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services.
