Health & Counseling Center

The Health and Counseling Center has a licensed nursing staff, as well as a licensed counselor. The office provides basic health services at no cost to Briar Cliff students. And no appointments necessary!

Nurse's Office

Students needing treatment or advice from the nurse's office are encouraged to visit or walk-in. However, if it is an emergency, you should call 911 as soon as possible. During office hours, a campus nurse is on hand. You can also be examined by a nurse practitioner, who is on campus twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.). While our office provides basic health services at no cost to our students, there are minimal charges for laboratory testing, tuberculosis screenings and immunizations.


Counseling services are available, free and confidential for all Briar Cliff students. The campus counselor is a licensed and certified mental health and addictions counselor and works with many life issues: alcohol or drug use/abuse, eating disorders, relationship issues, sexual abuse, stress and anxiety. Please make an appointment by stopping in, or you can call or email the counselor anytime with questions or concerns.

Health Insurance

All students carrying nine or more credit hours on the Briar Cliff University campus are required to carry health insurance. Coverage may be through the student’s parents or through insurance students carry on their own.

Medical History Form

All athletes who wish to compete for Briar Cliff are required to complete a standard medical history form upon admission to the University. Also, non-athletes may also fill out a standard medical history form to help improve patient care at our Health Services office.
