All registered Wagner College students are eligible for care at the Center for Health and Counseling/Wellness Center.   The office functions as a screening, diagnostic and treatment center but does not maintain an infirmary. Students harboring a communicable disease must contact the Center for Health and Wellness and speak with a nurse about further instructions; after evaluation, arrangements are made for their care with their parents or guardians. In addition we contract Quest and LabCorp laboratory services. Counseling services are available during the academic year.

Our goal is to enhance the health and well being of our students in support of their learning and success.
