The Susquehanna student health center is located in the Geisinger-Susquehanna University clinic, a 16,000-square-foot facility located at 620 University Ave. Anju Sonia Dayal, M.D., is the medical and administrative director at Geisinger-Susquehanna University Health Center.
Through our partnership with Geisinger, you'll benefit from enhanced space, electronic health records including patient portal (mygeisinger.org), and additional medical and surgical specialty practitioners and services right here on campus.
When the Susquehanna Student Health Center is closed, a Health Center nurse is available to assess and give advice about students' health concerns.
Geisinger is an integrated health services organization widely recognized for its innovative use of the electronic health record and innovative care models. The system serves more than 3 million residents throughout 48 counties in central, south-central and northeastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
You can access your student health record on myGeisinger.
All full time undergraduate students are eligible to access Susquehanna Student Health Center services, having paid the mandatory health services fee. This includes an EIIA "in-excess" benefits package that allows students to be seen in the Susquehanna health and counseling centers without private insurance (within limits) or copay charges. It also allows coverage for some lab and diagnostic fees and can be used secondarily to the student's private insurance with a referral from the Student Health Center.
There is no charge to see a physician provider at the Susquehanna Student Health Center. Geisinger will charge for services rendered at their facility, when applicable.
Charges incurred at the Student Health Center are likely for medications or testing necessary for care. These charges can either be added to your student account or can be paid in the Student Health Center with a credit card or SU Bucks. Charges not paid within two days will automatically be added to the student account.
A more inclusive benefit plan for international students is mandatory and guided by the student’s visa. More information is available here or by calling the Student Health Center at 570-372-4385.
Part-time students and student teacher interns are not required to pay the health services fee and are therefore ineligible for services at the Student Health Center.
How do I get a prescription refill from my home physician?
According to Pennsylvania law, a PA physician can send you a prescription. You then can take this prescription to a pharmacy to be filled. Your state residency and the state residency of your physician do not matter. We encourage students to maintain a relationship with their home providers for ongoing medication regimens, such as psychotropics or ADD/ADHD medications because these are not prescribed by Susquehanna student health providers. In addition, controlled substances are not prescribed or refilled by the student health providers.
Do I need an appointment to see a care provider?
Yes, patients are seen by appointment only. Another option is to come into the Student Health Center for a nurse evaluation. The nurse may offer symptomatic care of your illness and/or assist you in coordinating an appointment, if needed.
Can I receive allergy injections through the Student Health Center?
Yes, but we require that you have your allergist complete the allergy injection policy and bring the completed form with your allergy serum. Students are also required to remain at the Student Health Center for 30 minutes after receiving the injection. The first dose of any allergy serum mixture must be given at the allergist's office. The Susquehanna Student Health Center will NOT give the first dose of any allergy vial.
Can I get medications through the Health Center?
The Student Health Center dispenses single doses of over-the-counter (OTC) medications, such as generic Tylenol, ibuprofen, cold and sinus medications or cough drops if deemed necessary after nurse or provider evaluation. We encourage students to keep supplies of OTC medications with them to be used as needed.
Some prescription medications ordered by the physician are available at the Student Health Center. The Student Health Center does not honor pharmacy prescription plans since we are not a pharmacy, but we obtain medications at a reduced cost and share that reduced cost with our students. It is not necessary for students to have cash, as medications can be billed to student accounts.
At the student's request, prescriptions can be forwarded to local pharmacies where private health insurance plans with prescription benefits are honored. Transportation can be provided to these pharmacies, if needed. The university has an agreement with the Selinsgrove CVS pharmacy so that students may pick up prescriptions there without needing cash. With permission, a medication can be billed by CVS to the university and then charged to a student's university account.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education.
While often thought of as a law that applies to athletics programs, Title IX is much broader than athletics. It applies to other programs here as well, including academics and administration.
