Visit Health Services at 175 W. Knox St. (across from soccer fields) during regular business hours. All appointments are done on a walk-in basis. Hours are Monday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Tuesday to Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Bring your insurance card.


Call 9-1- 1. An ambulance will come and take you to OSF St. Mary Medical Center or Cottage Hospital, both are in Galesburg. Even though the Health Services fee does not cover ambulance services or emergency room services, it is important to get yourself taken care of.

After Hours Services

Visit OSF Prompt Care. This clinic does not require appointments. It is open Monday through Saturday from 8:00 am to 7:00 p.m. and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Holiday hours are listed on the main link. They are located at 3375 N. Seminary St.

Missing Class

If you miss a class due to an illness, contact your professor prior to missing the class. Please follow class guidelines regarding absences due to illness. The Health Center will provide medical documentation, upon request, for students they feel have legitimate health problems that require class absences. Extended class absences or missed examinations should be reported by the student to Lori Schroeder, Associate Dean of the College, as soon as possible.

Follow recommendations

After visiting a health care provider, make sure you have a clear understanding of the best way to get you back on your feet. This is the time to ask questions. Ask the provider to write down recommendations, so you have them available as needed. Fill your prescriptions as soon as possible. Return back to your health care provider if your symptoms worsen.
