About Macon Student Health Center

The Student Health Center (SHC) provides health services for all Mercer students, regardless of insurance coverage (SHC is considered the primary healthcare provider for students that have the school insurance and students who have this insurance should contact Student Health if appointments or referrals are needed prior to seeking other medical attention unless after hours or in cases of emergency).

The Student Health Center provides many services including health care for acute illnesses and injuries, allergy injections, immunizations, women's health, health education and various physical exams. Some students may be referred, depending on the illness/injury, at the discretion of the Student Health Center staff.

Medical Excuses

The Student Health Center does not provide medical excuses for missed classes, exams, or assignments.  In the event that you need to miss class due to an illness, injury or an emergency, the Student Health Center recommends that you contact your professor, preferably before the class or exam takes place.  You should speak with him/her in person, by phone, or email as soon as possible.  If you are unable to reach your professor, be sure to leave your contact information (telephone number and email) so that he/she can reach you.  All decisions about the impact of your absence on your grade, as well as any arrangements for making up work, rest with your instructors.
