August 13, 2020

To better accommodate the healthcare needs of our students we will now be open weekends during the fall semester:

Saturdays from 10:00 am to 5:30 pm. Our last Saturday for the fall semester will be on 12/12/2020.

Weekend office visits will be on a walk-in-only basis, and patients will be prioritized based on medical need.

Check in will be located at the Extended Care Services entrance off of our parking lot at the rear of the building.

To minimize the risk of airborne pathogens, visitors are prohibited from entering the building with patients.

As always, there is no charge to full time students for an office visit for illness or injury. If, for any reason, charges are incurred during a visit, we will bill insurance or send your balance to your Bursar account.

Flu Vaccine Requirement for Students
July 29, 2020

The annual influenza vaccination has been added as a required vaccination for enrolled students, as a condition to being on campus. This is part of the University's pandemic response measures and the Protect Purdue initiative.

Purdue is requesting all students obtain their influenza vaccine this fall between September 1st and October 31st. Those who are taking classes remotely this fall do not have to come to campus for their vaccines and can utilize their healthcare provider or community pharmacy should they choose. Students who are unable to get the vaccine due to a medical condition or religious reason will need to complete the Purdue University declination form. Students must upload their declination form to the Patient Portal. The declination form can be found here.

There will be several On-campus flu shot events and locations. More information about locations and dates can be found here.

Flu vaccines administered at PUSH will be billed to insurance, at your request.

Voicing Concerns at PUSH
October 19, 2020

Our goal at the Purdue Student Health Center is to provide you with the best possible care and services. If your experience did not meet our goal, please let us know by contacting the Student Health Center Patient Advocate, Marilyn Foster, at 765-494-1720, or in person at PUSH room 132. You may also report your concern to the Purdue University Enterprise-wide hotline 866-818-2620 or

Because we know that health insurance and billing can also be a source of concern, we want to help with that as well. Please contact Lori Blair, Business Services Manager at 765-496-3138 for billing and insurance concerns.

Detailed medical bills are available to students online for up to 2 years from their date of service through the Patient Portal.

Online Option Students and Services at PUSH
August 11, 2020

If you are an Online Option student you are required to be distanced from all activities and physical locations on campus, including PUSH. However, there are ways that PUSH can help meet your healthcare needs this semester.

  • As an online option student living inside the state of Indiana at the time of the visit, you are eligible for telehealth care from a provider for any reason.
  • As an online option student living outside the state of Indiana at the time of the visit, if you have previously seen a PUSH provider for a chronic condition, you are eligible for telehealth care from that provider to ensure continuity of care. Students who are established and meet this eligibility requirement may schedule an appointment by calling 765-494-1700, option 0.
  • These policies follow Indiana State Medical Board regulations, which limit the services that can be performed out-of-state.
  • If you have medical questions or concerns about COVID-19 please contact the Protect Purdue Health Center at 765-496-4636, option 1.
