Student Health Clinic

The mission of the clinic is to provide comprehensive high quality healthcare for all of our students, but particularly our on-campus residential students who may not have an established provider in the area. Gardner-Webb is committed to the overall wellness of students. 

Gardner-Webb University partners with Atrium Health to provide student health services for all students (including graduate, online undergraduate degree completion program, and part-time TUG students). All residential students as well as our full-time traditional undergraduate commuter students are assessed the Student Health Clinic fee of $125 per semester (charged to their account) and may utilize the Student Health Clinic.  Graduate and online undergraduate degree completion students may contact Becky Toney to opt-in and have the ability to utilize the Student Health Clinic by paying the Student Health Clinic Fee.  Additionally, no claims will be submitted to a student’s health insurance provider for the level of care provided through the Student Health Clinic.  All costs, with the exception of certain laboratory costs, are covered by the Student Health Clinic Fee.
