Student Health & Counseling Center

Welcome to the Student Health & Counseling Centers

The Student Health & Counseling Centers are located at both the Lakewood and the Arvada Campuses. The Student Health & Counseling Centers are medical centers staffed by certified and licensed medical providers. We provide nearly all general medical care that would be similar to visiting a Family Practice Clinic. 

Center History:

In 2011-12, the RRCC Student Government pursued and succeeded in getting the majority study body vote to support the construction and implementation of a Student Health & Counseling Center. The Lakewood campus center opened in September 2012 and continues to serve the needs of all RRCC students. Then, as RRCC administrators pursued a large addition to the Arvada campus in 2015 that would have a focus on Health and Sciences.

How it works:
 

For Students

The Student Health & Counseling Centers are supported by fees. All RRCC students have access to the services at the center. If you have not automatically paid the center fee, you have the ability to "opt in" by paying the fee at the cashiers department. 

Visits with the medical providers on campus are free of charge (no co-pay) for students. You do not need health insurance to be seen in the Student Health & Counseling Center.

The center charges minimal fees for various services to cover the cost of materials (ex: stitches, wart removal, vaccinations, etc.)

For Employees

The Student Health & Counseling Center is now offering medical services to all RRCC staff, faculty, and employees for a co-pay of $30 per visit. All medical services and pricing for procedures will remain the same for staff members. Please bring a valid employee ID to your visit. We take credit cards and cash at the center. This center does not process health insurance.
