There is no charge to visit the nurse and there are various over the counter medications available free of charge. If a referral is made to a health care professional off campus, that cost, as well as laboratory, x-ray, emergency room and/or prescription costs are the student's responsibility and/or their insurance provider. Transportation to an off-campus health care facility is also the responsibility of the student. 

You are welcome to stop by anytime during office hours (8:30 am - 4:00 pm), however, it is helpful to make an appointment by calling 218-281-8512 or emailing Stacey at
