Please review the commonly asked questions and our answers below. If you have any additional questions, contact the Student Health & Wellness Centre at 902-494-2171.
Can I still use the Student Health & Wellness Centre if I am graduating this spring?
You are able to continue using the services at the Student Health & Wellness Centre until August 31 of your graduating year. This includes both medical and counselling services.
If you have been seeing a physician, the physician and the Student Health & Wellness Centre team can assist you in transferring your file to an outside family physician. If you have been seeing a physician and wish to continue seeing your physician at the Student Health & Wellness Centre after August 31, please make an appointment with your physician to discuss your options.
Patients with special circumstances (e.g., patients being followed for active illness or with chronic illness) may be considered for additional access to medical services on a case-by-case basis. If you think this is the case for you, please make an appointment prior to August 31, 2021 to discuss this with your physician.
I am graduating, but I am registered to return as a graduate student this fall. Can I still use services at the Student Health & Wellness Centre?
