About Student Health Services

Scope of Service

The scope of services provided by Student Health Services is established at Santa Rosa Junior College by District Policy and Procedure 8.4 and 8.4P http://www.santarosa.edu/polman/8stuserv/8.4P.pdf. As legislated by Education Code 76322, and Title 5 regulations, the services are based on a public health model.

Services provided include control of communicable diseases, short term clinical care for illnesses and injuries, crisis intervention and brief counseling for mental health concerns, and preventive health promotion. Healthcare for chronic, long term conditions is not within the scope of the department’s services, though referrals and community resources are provided for students that need them. Collaboration with community service providers is central to the model.

Health Fee and Eligibility

Student Health Services is funded primarily by a Health Fee charged to students enrolling in credit courses during registration. This fee is currently $19 for each fall and spring semester, and $16 for the summer session. At this time, the District allows waivers for students currently enrolled in Study Abroad programs, incarcerated students, students in qualified apprenticeship programs, and students that rely exclusively upon prayer for healing (form available in Admissions and Records).

All students enrolled in any credit course in the Sonoma County Junior College District are eligible to access services funded by the Health Fee. Professional visits and select supplies are provided free of charge. Cost of care obtained at other healthcare facilities, however, is the student's financial responsibility. Non-credit students may access our on-line, health promotion, and referral resources.

For more information about the Health Fee please read Frequently Asked Questions about the Health Fee (PDF: 291 KB).

Patient Rights and Responsibilities

Student Health Services recognizes that all patients are individuals with unique health care needs. Care should be focused upon the patient's individual needs, and provided in a manner that is considerate and respectful of each patient's personal dignity. It is in recognition of these factors that Santa Rosa Junior College Student Health Service’s department affirms certain rights and responsibilities for its patients.
