Go to our Urgent, Hospital, Crisis, and Emergency Resources pages for resources when our office is closed. 

Services During Intersession and Summer Session

  • Students registered for classes during the intersession or summer sessions are billed the student health fee within their tuition. 
  • Students required to remain on campus by Residence Life, Athletics, Orientation, Theatre, or International Students will not be assessed the health fee.
  • Students who are NOT registered for classes, or required to be on campus, but would like to utilize Health and Counseling services will be billed a small Intersession or Summer Health fee. 
    • This one-time fee will be billed directly to their student account upon arrival to their first in-person or zoom appointment with health or counseling. 
  • Established Psychiatrist patients requesting a prescribed medication refill, will not be charged the interim fee.
    • Should the refill request require the student to partake in a zoom visit with our Psychiatrist, the fee will be assessed and billed to their student account

This fee is valid through the entire Intersession or Summer Session. 

Navigating your Geneseo Health Portal

Visit our Using My Health Portal page for detailed navigation instructions. 

Students are able to access many features and services through their student health portal, My Health.  My Health includes links for scheduling appointments, canceling appointments, completing required forms, enabling text message reminders, sending and receiving secure messages, verifying your visits, and more! 

Prescription Delivery

Wegmans in Geneseo delivers prescriptions to the main Lauderdale Health Center building Monday-Friday during our business hours. New prescriptions must be received by 2 pm in order to be delivered that same day. To initiate this service, you must first complete this paperwork and turn it into Wegmans or Lauderdale. Note that these forms will authorize Wegmans to keep your credit card on file.

Other things to know:

  • You must opt out of automatic refills; instead, inform Wegmans to deliver to Lauderdale when you call for a refill.
  • You may get a text from Wegmans that alerts you that your prescription is ready, but that does not mean it has arrived at Lauderdale.
  • Wegmans usually delivers prescriptions to Lauderdale on weekdays between 3 and 3:30 pm.
  • You must sign up each semester.
