Announcements

The Student Health Center will remain open for students but starting on March 24, 2020 it will operate with limited hours on campus. Our hours of operation will be Monday—Friday 10am-3:30pm.

If students have any questions or concerns regarding matters of their health, they should contact their SHC provider via secure messaging (within the Student Health Portal) and your provider will get back to you within 1 business day. Students who are concerned that they might be ill with COVID-19 should click here for more information.

As of March 23, 2020 all psychiatric appointments are now being conducted via telepsychiatry. Unfortunately, this service is only available for students who are physically located in Washington DC, as our psychiatrist and psychiatric nurse practitioner are not licensed to offer telepsychiatry to students who reside outside of DC.  If you are out of state, please send a secure message to your psychiatric provider. For psychiatry appointments please call: 202-885-3565 or email Psychiatry@american.edu (Please provide your First Name, Last Name, Date of Birth, and AUID Number). Before your scheduled appointment, you will be sent a secure message through the student health portal with instructions on how to connect for your telepsychiatry appointment. You can use any device to connect as long as it has audio and video capabilities.
