Parent Resources Accordion Closed
The education of your student involves more than just the classes in which they are enrolled. It involves learning how to manage time, finances, and yes, even health care.
Campus Health Services is a resource for services and information to keep your student’s mind and body healthy while at NAU. Campus Health Services is committed to the concept of wellness. We hope you view us as a center for wellness as well as a place for your student to come when they are ill or in need of care.
As a parent, you can ensure that your student is properly equipped to be successful when managing their health care by providing the following:
• Insurance ID card
• Vaccination history
• Medication list including name of medication, strength, and frequency
• Vitamins, herbal remedies, and other over-the-counter medicines
• Allergies and reactions to medication, food, and materials
• Family history of illnesses
This information will assist your student’s provider in properly assessing all symptoms and determining the best course of action in treating and meeting your student’s needs.
Parental access to student’s health records
Due to federal confidentiality laws, Campus Health Services is not able to communicate with parents without consent from the student. These laws are designed to protect one’s privacy and control how personal information is accessed and disclosed. These laws are commonly referred to as HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) and FERPA (Family Educational and Rights Privacy Act). HIPAA is designed to protect an individuals medical information while FERPA is designed to protect an individuals educational and financial information.
With your student’s permission, Campus Health Services staff may discuss your child’s health concerns or needs with you. Students will need to sign a release of records allowing staff to discuss specific medical or mental health issues.
Before new students can register, they are required to submit proof of two MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) immunizations. We also strongly recommend vaccination against meningitis ACWY and B, influenza, tetanus and pertussis. Learn about the immunization requirements and recommendations.
Health Coverage Options
Every student is welcome to receive care at Campus Health Services regardless of insurance coverage. While insurance is not required to receive care or treatment, all students are strongly encouraged to have some form of health insurance. Proof of health insurance is required for international students. NAU Campus Health Services offers both a discount service plan, Louie Care, and a medical insurance plan through the Arizona Board of Regents from Aetna Student Insurance. We are contracted with several insurance companies and can bill your insurance company for visits at our health center. Please visit our Insurance and Payment page for the most detailed reference to who we are contracted with and how to pay for your visit.

Psychiatry or Psychology/Counseling? Accordion Closed
Psychiatry and psychology are overlapping professions and often get confused. Both of these professions help people that experience emotional distress. Many people receive help from both of these professions. It is up to you where you would like to begin. If the clinician you meet with feels the other profession would be helpful we will refer you. Fortunately, campus health services has both psychiatry and psychology clinicians.
Psychiatry is the treatment of medical mental health disorders and often treated with medications.
Psychology/Counseling works with emotion and behaviors and treatment is focused on counseling, behavioral change and psychotherapy.
