Every currently enrolled Wayne State student gets one free illness visit per semester. Your free student visit covers the provider's time spent to evaluate you and address your reasons for coming in for the visit.  Any additional testing and/or procedures that are needed outside of that evaluation are not included in your free student visit.

Our Services Include:

  • Illness care (acute and chronic)
  • Preventative health care (immunizations, travel health, TB testing)
  • Routine health care (routine wellness, wellness exams and sexual health and testing)
  • Health promotion (wellness/health, health education)

Substance abuse prevention education

eCHECKUP TO GO (e-CHUG) is a brief, confidential, interactive assessment tool that provides students with individualized feedback regarding their alcohol use, and helps them identify their risk of harm associated with that use. The e-CHUG was developed by San Diego State University and is currently used by nearly 600 colleges and universities. This tool is free to students with no limit on how many times the assessment can be taken, allowing for students to track their alcohol use over a period of time.

While there is a good portion of Wayne State students who either do not drink or drink very infrequently, most students will at some point know someone (a classmate, friend, family member), who drinks at levels that causes them concern. e-CHUG provides basic knowledge about alcohol and helps students identify risk factors and patterns that lead to dangerous and destructive drinking. The e-CHUG also provides a listing of local and campus resources available to individuals who may have an alcohol and/or drug problem. Knowing this information can strengthen our ability to help our friends when they need help and make Wayne State University a safe and fun place to live, work and play.
