No out-of-pocket cost!

In office services at Student Health Clinic are available at no out-of-pocket cost to students. Enrolled MCTC students automatically pay the Student Life fee. A portion of that fee goes toward on-campus healthcare services. Enrolled students do not need health insurance to utilize the health clinic services. Students are responsible to pay for items not covered by the Student Life fee. Examples of things not paid for by the Student Life fee include: common medical supplies and equipment like ace wraps, crutches and splints. The clinic does not fill prescriptions or have medication for dispensing or purchasing.

Medical Information Nurse Line

The Medical Information Nurse Line is a nurse advice line phone service that provides 24/7 healthcare triage, referrals as well as recorded topics on health issues for MCTC students. If you are unsure what type of service you need, contact the Student Health Clinic Medical Information Nurse Phone Line by calling 612-626-4828 and choosing option 1.

The nurse will assess the severity of your symptoms and then guide you to the appropriate level of care. You will be instructed in how to receive the appropriate care, at the appropriate place and at the appropriate time. The nurse is an experienced professional who has the knowledge to help patients with immediate health concerns make informed decisions.

Mental health evaluation and referral

Painful feelings such as anxiety, anger, depression, low self-esteem and tension are a normal part of being human and can affect anyone. Sometimes these feelings are temporary and can be eased by rest, relaxation, exercise, good nutrition and support of trusted friends. At other times stressors, relationships, or past family experiences cannot be managed so easily and become overwhelming. When this happens, and you find it hard to function, you may want to seek professional help.

Clinic staff includes a licensed psychologist for counseling and psychotherapy (up to 6 sessions per year) and an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) for medication management.

At the first meeting, you and a therapist will work together to assess your needs, clarify your concerns and devise a plan for helpful service. Sometimes the most appropriate help for you will mean that you need services other than those that the Mental Health Clinician is able to offer. If this is so, the therapist will work to help you find services elsewhere to address your problems.

  • Diagnostic evaluation
  • Limited individual therapy (evaluation plus up to five more associated therapy visits)
  • Referrals to appropriate MCTC and community resources (please note that care received off campus is not covered by the Health Services fee, even if a Student Health Clinic provider gives a referral to an off-campus facility)

Mental health services are free and are paid through the Health Services fee included in your tuition. You must present your Student ID to use the Student Health Clinic at MCTC. You do not need health insurance to access mental health services. However, if you do have health insurance, bring your health insurance card to your clinic visit.

Student Health Clinic at MCTC is available as a result of advocacy efforts by Wellness Advocates for You (W.A.Y.), a collaborative effort of students, faculty, staff, community organizations and leaders to bring wellness education and services to the MCTC campus.
