Student Health Center

The Student Health Center is located on campus in the Johnson Wellness Center. Our nursing professionals are available to assist you with all of your health care needs while you are a student at Grand View. All visits are confidential.

Please note that services are free to students with the exception of fees for sports or employment physicals, immunizations, minor procedures, and lab work.

Health Insurance

It is highly recommended that students have health insurance. If you are without health insurance and need assistance in obtaining it, please contact the Student Life Office at 515-263-2885. Grand View will assist you in locating an appropriate policy. Under the Affordable Care Act, most students under the age of 26 are eligible to remain on a parent's health insurance policy, so you may want to explore that option first if it applies to you. 

There is also a Student Health Plan offered through Student Assurance Services. The coverage is limited, although it does provide some financial relief for some major medical expenses. For information, please inquire at the front desk in the Student Life Office.

Health Information

To ensure your safety and the safety of those around you during your college experience, we require a basic health review and proof of immunization of all residential, international students, and athletes.
