Visit the PLU Health Center
In order to study away you are required to visit either the PLU Health Center or a personal healthcare provider. Non-PLU students may also visit their campus' health clinic. Bring your PLU Off-Campus Medical Statement (and your program provider's medical form as applicable) to the appointment. You will not be able to study away until a medical provider has determined your ability to travel by signing this form.
IMPORTANT: If you are studying away on consecutive programs, list both programs and program dates on the Off-Campus Medical Statement. This will allow your medical release to be valid throughout the duration of your final program.
Tips and Notes:
- Be forthcoming about any medical history on the Off-Campus Medical Statement.
- PLU students are strongly encouraged to visit the Health Center. Be aware that other providers may charge additional fees (ex. fees to sign the required form) that may result in higher cost.
- PLU Health Center does not charge for this visit.
- Immunizations and lab tests will result in additional charges.
- All Health Center charges can be billed to your student account.
- If you have personal insurance, the company may reimburse you for expenses paid to the Health Center. The Health Center will not bill your insurance company. Check with your insurance company and keep all receipts.
- If you had a physical exam at the PLU Health Center within the last 3 months, the appointment may not be necessary. Contact the Health Center to inquire.
- If you are on a Featured, Approved Program or the Trinidad & Tobago Gateway program, you may have an additional medical form. Bring both medical forms to your appointment to avoid having to make two appointments.
- The PLU Health Center will submit the Medical Statement to the Wang Center on your behalf.
- Health details beyond what is required for the medical form are not shared with the Wang Center.
